(I believe in) the resurrection of the body…

“… if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, then the God who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give new life to your mortal bodies through his indwelling Spirit.”                                                 Romans 8:11




When I say

‘I believe in the resurrection of the body

and the life everlasting’,

how am I to regard this?


Gazing at the stars,

made from elements

each and all composed

by the creative love

of God, just the same as me.


I acknowledge a

Love beyond understanding,

but not beyond reach…


I believe that someday

we will see our loved ones

with every dimple

and every freckle

that was dear to us

when we ‘see God.’


For there

our imperishable selves

will be joined together:

our friends,

our loved ones,

our pets-

and of course also

those with whom we can’t get along

so, better to make peace

with them now.
