Eternity: Yesterday and Today

Consider this… no matter what our faith tradition or belief system, life as we know it on earth is temporary, and eternity waits beyond what we see and touch. Just look at the recent photos from the Hubble Telescope of the vast expanses of space! My husband had an interesting [...]
