A New Perspective on Life and Heaven

“November 2012 our daughter, Darby O’Brien, suffered a brain hemorrhage while in class at Auburn University . . . We really believed God could heal her right there. But that wasn’t his plan. . . . She, I think, would be . . . saying, ‘Okay, y'all know what’s important now. You can see it.’ All these things aren’t important in life: the baseball games, the baseball weekends. None of it . . . It should be your life with Christ and your salvation. Heaven’s really real to me, and it’s a place that gives me hope because there’s nothing more that I want than to be reunited. And that’s a happy place for me.”

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
