With Jesus

This is a zoomed in portion of the lid of the casket that brother Phil Brown custom made for Christy earlier this year. Not surprisingly, Christy's last five sentences that she spoke Saturday afternoon as she descended into a coma were "I'm going to be with Jesus." By faith we can say that she is gone to be with Jesus because she trusted in Him. This gives us great peace at such a time as this. We physically see a dead body, but with the eyes of faith we see that her spirit is departed and at this moment is present with her Lord, awaiting the resurrection of her body. She is experiencing right now the reality of those words in Psalm 16:11 - "Thou wilt show me the path of life; in Thy presence is fullness of joy..."

Dear Coleman Family,
We love you all very much. Our prayers are with you.
We can appreciate these two verses in reflecting on dear Christy now.
2 Tim 4 22 The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit.
Acts 7: 59 Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
How Christy demonstrated in her life the Lord Jesus was with her spirit.
And now her spirit is with her Lord Jesus in her sleep.
She was such an example to us of walking in nearness to her Lord.
Much love to you all,
Dave and Cheryl Lewis
