When you FINALLY make it!!!

As I shared with you all yesterday, this past weekend, I FINALLY climbed to the top of the mountain. When I finally made the last haul up, over that last rock and I was FINALLY standing on top of that mountain peak, I was so overwhelmed with a feeling of accomplishment, I DID IT! I MADE IT TO THE TOP, FINALLY, I DID IT!!!
After a few moments of excitement, my next thought was, MAN, I wish I could tell mom, she would be soooooo proud of me!!!
I knew when my mom died, that some of the hardest moments in life without her, wouldn't just be in the hard times, but in the moments of accomplishment and joy, for there was NO ONE that was prouder and happier for her children's successes then my mother!!!
Buuuuut before I could feel sad for to long, another thought went into my mind as I continued thinking about how I FINALLY made it to the top of that mountain. This annnnnnd SO MUCH MORE must be how my mom felt, when she breathed her last breath AND FINALLY, she was in heaven!!! To know that she had made it!!! To know that she done it!!! HEAVEN!!! She was there, I can only imagine how she must have felt!!!
Every time in life that she wanted to turn back, but she kept on going up that mountain called LIFE! Every struggle, all the pain she went through and the last two years of her life, bedridden, was so close to then end, but that finally climb up was the longest, the steepest the hardest, but she kept on pushing and the closer she got the harder it was for her, but finally she was there, that last step and she was standing on her mountain peak in heaven, SHE DID IT!!! SHE FINALLY MADE IT TO HEAVEN!!!
You guys,  we can't ever give up in this life, every heart ache, every trial, its going to be worth it when we see Jesus face to face! Just one step at a time, keep pushing through and day, oh glorious day, we'll be on top of our mountain peak of heaven and THE BEST PART about that final step of our hike into heaven, is that we'll NEVER have to do the hike back down, we'll forever be with Jesus!!! Just imagine my friends, WHEN WE FINALLY GET TO HEAVEN!!! When you see those walls of jasper, streets of gold and JESUS and you just throw your head back and scream at the top of your lungs,
Think about it...
"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." (Revelation 21:4)
"And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof." (Revelation 21:22-23)
I'm going you guys!!! I'm gonna keep going through this crazy life till I make that FINAL step into heaven, and if you think I got excited about climbing a mountain here on earth, you ain't seen NOTHING till I throw my head back in heaven and scream,
I'm HERE, in heaven,
