Rest in Peace Officer Zapata. I will keep you in my prayers intentions today. I heard a homily awhile ago about how babies still in the womb of their mother I would like to share.
That baby is happy, safe, content, and very comfortable and when that baby is born the first thing they do is cry. Now the baby is crying because of the fear of the changes that just happened. The unknown events that just happened. Their whole world just changed and they do not know what happened. When that baby is lifted and comforted by their Mother and Father that baby feels the love and now is happy, safe, content and very comforted and the worries about the changes are now taken away by being welcomed into this world by their Mother and Father.
Just as in the beginning of your life here on earth as in the end of your life, You now know that at that moment when you took your last breath, Jesus and Mary were there with open arms to welcome you. So you are now happy, safe, content, loved and very comforted by a new life with your Father and Mother again. You will always live forever.
You now know what we will all know someday. The beginning of your life here on earth is in no comparison of the life in heaven.
After reading some of the reflections I felt the need to share my thoughts. I take comfort in knowing that life here with our families is never long enough, But our life with Jesus is eternal and will never end. We will all meet up again.
