Vietnam Memorial: glimpsing indisputable life

Have you ever sat around the dinner table with relatives and fondly laughed together over some humorous incident involving a family member who has long since passed on?

Although remembering friends and family can often be enjoyable, occasionally memories are painful, even tearful for a protracted length of time. We may feel yoked to the heavy burdens of grief and gloom, but we don't have to learn to live with loss. Instead, we can learn that real life is spiritual and eternal and can never be lost, because God is its source and substance. Christ Jesus, who proved the indestructibility of life, bids us: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. ... For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Matt. 11:28, 30).
