Looking Up Rosie

I have a friend I have not seen in twenty-two years.  We worked together in the same hospital and worked every weekend together.  We had become so close our youngest daughter's middle name is "Rose" after Rosie.

Every time I would encounter someone who had worked in the same Labor & Delivery unit with us, I would question if they knew anything about Rosie.  Each time the answer was "No, I haven't heard from her in years."  I had almost given up the search for Rosie until someone suggested I look on Facebook.

Years ago when I was a Facebook person, I had looked for her and not found her.  In the years since, I have deleted my Facebook account, and it took quite a while for me to be convinced to restart it again. But I did, and there she was, absolutely the same Rosie I had known and loved.

Even if I had never found Rosie on Facebook though, I knew we would be in communication again sometime.  You see, Rosie is a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ as I am, so I knew, if not in this world, we would see each other again in Heaven.

"For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, 
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: 
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain 
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, 
to meet the Lord in the air: 
and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
1 Thessalonians 4:16,17
