“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.”

SCOTUS Sides With Religious Schools And Hospitals In Employment Discrimination Case

Published

on

The Supreme Court, in its second religious freedom decision, decided to side with religious employers, which includes schools, hospitals, and social services organizations, stating they are exempt from certain aspects of the employment discrimination law when that law conflicts with closely held religious beliefs. If you listen closely, you can hear the screams of the angry LGBTQ+ mob ripping through America as it dawns on them they have no right to force their beliefs upon those who disagree with their lifestyle choices. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: The 7-2 decision had the same breakdown as the Supreme Court’s contraception mandate decision; Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s conservatives, as did Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer, and Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. The case before the court involved two Catholic schools, St. James Catholic School and Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic School, that dismissed employees who later sued. Religious institutions typically have a so-called “ministerial exemption” allowing them more leeway in hiring and firing and certain protection from employment discrimination suits, but the case before the Supreme Court ultimately tested whether there was a specific limit to that “ministerial exemption,” particularly where the fired employees were not technically members of the church’s ministry. Employers have the right to decide who they want to hire and not hire, to terminate employment or not. It’s their business. They should be able to do what they want. Especially when it comes to actual religious institutions. This is a hard pill to swallow for the left who seems to think that employers themselves, by starting a business, have no rights, or give those up the moment they create a company. If a business owner doesn’t want someone to work at their business, they have the right to say…

Instead Of Abolishing Police, How About Abolishing Abortion And Planned Parenthood? OPINION

Published

on

Over the last several weeks, we’ve all witnessed our nation being further destroyed and torn apart by individuals who claim to be fighting against racism and police brutality. We’ve watched as these same folks burn businesses to the ground in the name of peace, a message stuffed to the gills with oxymoronic irony that appears to be lost on folks who are trying to justify this behavior on the grounds of the cause we now know as “black lives matter.” That’s a phrase we’ve heard a lot lately. And you know what? It’s true. Black lives really do matter. Black lives are image bearers of God, which means they have intrinsic value and worth. Black lives are no different than lives of any other color or ethnicity. Adam and Eve are our first parents. Our blood is the same shade of red. Our ancestry is the exact same when you trace it back to the beginning. We all suffer from the same fallen nature, the same sinful disposition, that has earned us a place under the wrath of God, with our only hope being Jesus Christ and the work He accomplished through His life, death, and resurrection. Since black lives really do matter, instead of abolishing police departments, we should all be united in a fight against the ultimate destroyer of the black community: Abortion. Yes, instead of tossing out police departments, we ought to be giving Planned Parenthood the boot. More black lives have been taken at abortion clinics than have ever been killed by evil, twisted police officers. And that’s not to make light of police brutality. It’s a real thing. It exists. Perhaps we as conservatives have been so gung-ho in the past about blindly supporting police that we’ve ignored that reality. Well, it’s hard to ignore…
