A Long Life

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life."
John 6:47 (King James Bible)

This tombstone inscription in Old Live Oak Cemetery declares that the deceased
 was given a long life, even forever and ever. While 41 years doesn't seem 
like a long earthly life today, babies who were born in the U.S. around 1864 
only had an average life expectancy of 48 years. However, Jesus promises
 that those who believe on Him can live with Him forever and ever.

just can't get my earthly mind wrapped around what eternity will be like! life forever more! Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see! thanks for the reminder =0)
