Life is constant change. Everything we see or hold disappears and decays.
Life is constant change. We must accept this fact and know that everything we see or hold disappears and decays. Doors open constantly to distinct areas and close firmly behind us as we finish each phase of life.
One hundred years ago Jacob and Aganetha Suderman were young parents with a growing family. They moved to America. Since 1922 they rest side by side in the Ebenfeld Cemetery. Their eleven grown children sleep and wait with them. Will the lines of God’s grace be strong enough to extend to future generations?
As long as earth stands and new babies are born to our children and grandchildren, the Suderman Saga rolls on. The pleasant places of our inheritance remain to “thousands of generations” of those who love God and keep His commandments (Exodus 20:6). The promise His Word will never fail and the inheritance of eternal life lies within each heart that seeks to do His will.
Truly, the lines are fallen in pleasant places for us. We have a rich heritage. Guard it well, for we are the relay runners handing this baton to our children.
A rich family history where death, loss, and grief lead to prayer and praise, The Lines Are Fallen by Anna Daisy Siemens tells the story of a family legacy. May you be strengthened to walk in faith as you read this book!
