Years ago, I was holding my precious baby Rebekah during the Sunday morning meeting we call Remembrance Meeting. Honoring the Lord’s dying request, we gather to worship and remember that our Savior shed His blood for us. Thoughts are shared from the Scriptures, prayers are offered, and hymns are sung. It is a sweet, beautiful time of humble adoration, praise and thanksgiving.
In the midst of the meeting, she woke up from her little morning snooze.
She wasn’t startled, but awaked with the warm harmonious blending of voices in song. Her eyes and mouth were wide open in wonder, her little toes lightly moving in rhythmic enjoyment.
My heart warmed with the thought of my precious baby waking up in the presence of worship.
I was struck with the profoundness of my revelation.
I wondered – is this what it be will be like for us believers at death?
After death, will we just open our eyes into presence of worship and at the feet of the One being worshipped?
It still causes my heart to rejoice that a little child literally demonstrated to me the beauty and wonderment of a believer who “sleeps.”
What a glorious moring that will be!
