Tonight, for the first time in his 27 years, my friend Nathan took a long deep breath.
He stepped from a body that caused pain and prevented him from getting the very breath that we need, into the most wonderful, marvelous place -- right into the arms of the Lord. Knowing Nathan, he didn't stroll into heaven leisurely either,... he went on a jetski or a four wheeler laughing and smiling.
With his parents by his side, and family and friends around, he stepped from earth to glory.
And for that, I can't help but praise the Lord that he is healed.
