“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”  Matthew 5:6

Putting Jesus first in our lives brings us peace and joy.  Each day is a blessing serving Him.  Throughout all eternity we can enjoy walking and talking with Him.

We can never thank our Lord enough for all that He has done for us.  Praise His name!

Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”  Revelation 7:14-17
