I was reading in Isaiah this morning.
"O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago.... You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat...
On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine— the best of meats and the finest of wines. On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth. The LORD has spoken.
In that day they will say, 'Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the LORD, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.' " IS 25:1-9
Tommorrow we will have a BBQ in Paul's memory. May it be a foreshadow if the banquet we will have together when death is fully shallowed up.
