This life is full of surprises. Just when we think we have a good grasp on things, something happens to remind us that we're not in charge. Just when you have all the balls juggling at the right pace, something changes and all of them fall to the ground. Whatever happens and whatever changes are often harsh reminders that this world is not our home. Reality checks. In extreme cases, what happens and changes is someone you love goes to be HOME IN HEAVEN.

This week Susan and my beloved mother and matriarch of our church, Diane Siegel has left this earthly dwelling place to be home in heaven. She experienced only peace and contentment as she left this earthly tent, her mortal body. Paul the apostle comforts us when he said, "For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens" (2 Co 5:1).
