“His last few hours were some of the most amazing moments I know I will ever have the privilege of witnessing,” she continued “He opened his eyes last night. They shined the brightest I’ve ever seen anyone’s eyes shine, and he said, ‘Jesus.’ We said, ‘What do you see Sam?’ He said, ‘It’s so beautiful.’”

“Mom asked him who he saw and he told her a bunch of people, including his mama. He later said, ‘I love you all. I found it.’ My mom asked him what he found and he said, ‘Heaven. I’ve got to go.’ An hour later he went to be with the Lord.”

Alaina said she was inspired to share this moment to “be an example of how real God is.”

My stepdad, Sam, went to heaven at one o’clock this morning. He was the purest example of how to love and live life fully. His last few hours were some of the most amazing moments I know I will ever have the privilege of witnessing. He opened his eyes last night. They shined the brightest I’ve ever seen anyone’s eyes shine, and he said, “Jesus.” We said, “What do you see Sam?” He said, “It’s so beautiful.” Mom asked him who he saw and he told her a bunch of people, including his mama. He later said, “I love you all. I found it.” My mom asked him what he found and he said, “Heaven. I’ve got to go.” An hour later he went to be with the Lord. I want this story to be an example of how real God is. We are only here for a short amount of time, and we have to live like there is no tomorrow. I want us to all be a little more like Sam. He was strong. He was the most compassionate person in the world. He would go without to help a stranger. He was a great dad. Now he is with the best Father in the universe. Thank you to everyone who has supported our family in this time. We appreciate the love, donations, and prayers that we have received.

“We are only here for a short amount of time,” she explained. “And we have to live like there is no tomorrow.”

“I want us to all be a little more like Sam,” Alaina added. “He was strong. He was the most compassionate person in the world. He would go without to help a stranger. He was a great dad. Now he is with the best Father in the universe. Thank you to everyone who has supported our family in this time. We appreciate the love, donations, and prayers that we have received.”

Her followers responded overwhelmingly, with some sharing their own experiences of witnessing family members meet Jesus.

“My husband was laying in a hospital bed in our home. He was on morphine and hadn’t been responding to us. I heard voices. I went into his room where he lay and he was looking straight up and had both hands raised up high and I know he was talking to Jesus,” one user shared. “The next day he went to meet Him. That was my final assurance on his love for God. I think God came to him that night. It’s been almost 3 yrs now and I cry everyday for him but I have no doubt that when the Lord comes back my precious husband will meet Him in the air.”

“I want to share my Dads experience as well,” another shared. “He left this world Feb 9, 2018. He was diagnosed Sept 2017 with GBM4. When the initial tumor was removed he said during the surgery God took him to where there were many mansions. He asked the Lord was He taking him home? The Lord answered ‘Not yet. You still have work to do’. So my Dad came out of a major brain surgery where the tumor was the size of a mans hand.”

“Telling his story,” the same user continued, “he had a sermon to preach to all of us. See, he was our churches Pastor as well. Even though the doctors gave him 3-6 months to live, he knew that only God knew when He would be back for him. He left us peacefully and content in knowing he did His work. Bless you and your family during this sad but celebratory time.”

12-Year-Old Hailed as Hero After Saving His Friends Life After Disturbing Snapchat Posts

We certainly hope there are many more young people like Gabe out there willing to reach out and intervene when their friends are in trouble

Most of the time, when we think of preteens using Snapchat, we think of all the scary things that can happen online. Bullying, predatory behavior, pornography. It’s a scary cyber world out there. But oddly enough, when one 12-year-old with a good heart and sharp instincts managed to use Snapchat to get his friend the help she needed in the nick of time, by responding quickly right when he noticed something was amiss. Yahoo News reports: Gabe Rongier had been chatting with his friend, who he met on the social media app through a mutual friend, when he noticed a drastic change in the girl’s emotions. According to CBS Pittsburgh, the girl shared a disturbing post that read she “wouldn’t be here tomorrow.” Want daily pop culture news delivered to your inbox? for Yahoo’s newsletter. Gabe, not knowing how to alert the authorities in Texas about the girl possibly being a danger to herself, called the suicide hotline. “I called the suicidal prevention services and it linked me to Officer Chandler [in Texas,]” Gabe told the outlet. “He went to her house, checked up on her. The next day he called me and said, ‘She’s fine. It’s real.’” Gabe’s parents, Fred and Lori, were informed by investigators that they used geotracking to locate the girl and that they arrived in time to intervene with any plans she may have had. “Of course, I’m very proud of him, but I really hope that other young people his age might see the story and also be inspired to also take action to help somebody in need just like Gabe did,” Lori said. Fred added, “When he went to bed, I always kiss him and, I’ve been telling him since that day, ‘You’re my little hero.’” Officer Chandler also sent Gabe, who wants…

Huge Fire Tears Through Church…You Won’t Believe Went Unscathed

Firefighters were absolutely shocked when they finally got inside the razed church.

Truly and utterly, there are some time in which the truth is far stranger than any conjured fiction. Here in America, we seem to love these stories and the mysteries behind them.  We’re obsessed with unsolved true crime, the paranormal, and all things hypothetical…including bizarre notions about the ancient Egyptians galavanting around with extraterrestrials. Is this simply escapism run amok?  Perhaps, but we have been drawn to the impossible and improbable throughout the entirety of human history. That is why the story of a church fire in West Virginia is so compelling. Firefighters in West Virginia surveying the damage from an inferno that had gutted a church over the weekend were astounded when they discovered that a bevy of Bibles and crosses had somehow survived the conflagration unscathed. The remarkable find was reportedly made early Sunday morning after the Coal City Fire Department helped to battle a blaze that had engulfed the Freedom Ministries Church in the community of Greenview. Upon entering the building, the team of rescue workers was stunned to see that every Bible inside the church had apparently made it through the harrowing ordeal undamaged. Posting pictures of the amazing sight to Facebook, the department noted that the fire had, at one point, been so hot that they were actually forced to pull personnel from the building for their safety. The temperatures were so extreme, they explained, that everything inside should have been reduced to ashes. Firefighters also remarked that none of the crosses inside the church itself were damaged by fire either, adding to the mystery.
