Eternal Perspectives

Although earthly family relationships will be superseded, my dear mother will always be the same person. I myself will always be the same person. For the Christian, death neither obliterates human identity nor submerges the individual distinctives of human personality. Those traits and characteristics which are individually peculiar to you and me will not only reappear yonder but will be refined and accentuated. All the unlovely will have been eliminated, and every loveable feature will be retained, emphasized, sublimated. As there have been special loves here, so will there continue to be in that higher life.
