Kansas City, Missouri is separated from Kansas City, Kansas by the Missouri River. Years ago, there was an old farmer who lived on the Kansas side of the river. He had a farm, a wife and a beautiful daughter. The farmer and his family had never been across the river. They had lived their whole life on the Kansas side.

One day, a young man floated across the Missouri River and met his daughter. He married his girl and then took her away with him to the other side of the river. The farmer found himself daydreaming as he worked his fields. He wondered how his girl was doing. He wondered if she was thinking of him. He wondered how her husband was treating her. He had never been across the river...but now, that is all he could think about.

When we lose our loved ones in Christ...the Father comes and takes something very precious to us to the other side of the year. Then we find ourselves wondering where they are, how they are doing and if they are thinking about us. We have never been on the other side of the river...but we can be content to know that the Father is watching over our loved ones until we meet again.
