I would recognize it anywhere.
Last week a memory came up on my Facebook page from 5 years ago. Davey had made a video of his son sharing what he learned in Children’s Church that Sunday. Adding arm gestures, 4 year-old Micah said, “God loves me.” Watching the video, I was just starting to smile when I heard Davey’s voice come onto the video, encouraging Micah.
I wasn’t prepared.
The tears started instantly.
I would recognize that voice anywhere.
David Glasser was a Phoenix Police Officer who was killed in the line of duty on May 18, 2016. Almost 4 years ago. At times like these, it feels like yesterday. If you knew Davey or were at his funeral, you know he is in heaven today. He put his faith in Jesus and he wasn’t shy about sharing that with other people.
God leaves out a lot of details in the Bible about how heaven works. He mentions streets of gold, mansions and crowns but I think he used those descriptions because those are things we can relate to and understand. I think heaven is going to be indescribably better than that.
God gives us a glimpse of what our bodies might be like in heaven when we read about Jesus after his resurrection. Jesus ate, he walked through walls, and he just ‘appeared’ places. People didn’t recognize him right away….. but then they did a double-take and knew who he was.
I know that we have each been uniquely designed by our Father God and we reflect different aspects of who he is. I believe we will take the good parts of that ‘personality’ into heaven with us.
I believe that – someday when I get to my ‘forever home’ in heaven – I will hear his voice again. Davey’s voice. I might not recognize him right away but I will instantly know who he is because of that voice.
Davey is there already.
Someday I’ll join him.
Miss you, Davey.
