Bible Verses

Psalm 139:16 - The Accident...

The Accident... It was not surprise to God...

You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day passed.

John 11:28 - Her passing...

Her passing... What a perspective to hold on to.

He who believes in me, though he may die, he will live

2 Cor. 5:7-8 - Where she is?

We walk by Faith...

7. We walk by Faith not by sight. Faith in what is ahead for those who believe and not the marker on the roadside reminding me of the accident.

Where she is....

8. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
... Just think about that: For we walk by Faith not by sight.

1Thess 4:13-18 - The Reunion...

The Reunion.. Oh Happy Day!

Look this up for yourself and get excited!

Books

The Message(MSG)

“The Message (MSG)” - Version Information, BibleGateway.com

This is one of my favorite translation. Like God is talking directly to me.

“Heaven” by Randy Alcorn

To get a perspective of what Heaven really is. If you think of it as floating around and playing harps, you are in for a big surprise.

“The Shack” by William P.Young

Although this book may not be a conventional Christian read, it caused me to think about the Trinity in a very new way.
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit come to life in a clearer understanding of the separate roles that are One God.

Page 179 was definitely one of my favorites.
Can she see me? Does she know I'm here?
She knows you are here, but cannot see you. From her side she is looking at a beautiful waterfall and nothing more.

I believe Tiffiany is so aware of what is going on here on Earth; and I swear sometimes I hear her cheering me on.

“The Travelers Gift” by Andy Andrews

This is a great read that has been added to the list because it stimulates the mind and causes you to think.

Think of those in our history books and what made them great. It reminds me that I, Christine, have a great purpose for God's Kingdom if I open my heart to it. Tiffiany also had a purpose, Tiffs Initiative. You were created by God for something great, open your heart and mind and ask him to show you.

 

Songs

The Afters - Live On Forever

The Afters, Live On Forever (Official Music Video)

...To stand in the presence of the One who gave everything for me. And forever worship at his feet. To have every question answered...

Mercy Me - I Can Only Imagine

Mercy Me, I Can Only Imagine

I played this song as I put my 22 year old daughters ashes in the Gulf of Mexico Christmas morning 2005. With the incredible beauty of a double rainbow, sea birds and flowers floating gently by, God's presence was amazing in this storm. I truly can only Imagine.

To even consider that Tiffi's accident was part of a bigger plan breaks my heart. But to trust my God through the pain and with every step I walk... Is My Hope

Mercy Me - Homesick

Mercy Me - Homesick

Heaven is a real place where those who are Christians will go one day. This is a song about missing someone who has gone on before. I hope you are prepared to go there so you can be with those you love. Lord I don't understand your ways so give me strength to make it through somehow.

 

So my prayer for you is this, consider what you have believed about God or Jesus. Have you doubted or questioned? Suppose it is true. Salvation is available to You, right now, right here. By simply saying and meaning this prayer with all your heart: "Jesus I believe you are who you say you are, the Son of God. I believe you died on the cross for me,with my name engraved on your hand. I ask you to forgive my sin and come into my heart, I make you my Lord and Savior".
Welcome to Hope. Find a good Bible believing church and start your new journey, you'll never regret it.

-Christine Olson, Tiffi's mom.
