On Her Way To Heaven

I serve as a pastor of a rural church. A church is like a family. When one church members is sick, it weighs heavy on a pastor’s heart. One lady had been battling cancer, and yet, she was able to come to church on Easter Sunday. It was a blessing to see her family with her at church that day. The next day, thinking she would be okay, I put my mountain bike in the car for a long overdue break. I was going to ride to the top of Mount Mitchell, in North Carolina. Halfway there, I got a call. The one battling cancer was battling no more. She was in heaven. I stopped the car and took this picture.
