Jake Page Car Accident – They say that God does not have favorites, but if He did, I have no doubt that Jake Page would be at the very top of His list of those to choose from. I’m also positive that it was a happy reunion when they met face to face this morning when he abruptly entered Heaven.
I say this because I’m certain that it was a joyful reunion. My very first companion from the moment I took my first breath in this world. The bonus brother is mine. And someone who has a particularly tight relationship with my family.
Since we were kids, Jake and I would get into these really intense and heated disputes. On nearly every topic imaginable. In spite of the fact that we loved one another deeply, we fought like brothers and sisters. His inability to ever reconsider any of his positions was a source of constant annoyance for me.
Nothing can be said about what he was thinking, what he was believing, or how he was feeling. You could never persuade him to see things your way. Yet as time went on, it turned into one of my most cherished qualities about him.
He did not waver at any point. In anything. His beliefs. His goodness. His undying devotion. His affection. His goodness. The one area in which this quality shone through most brightly was in his connection with the Lord. There are a lot of things that I am not familiar with, and it’s likely that I never will be. I don’t understand why God would take from this world one of the holiest persons I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. I don’t see why He would do anything like that to a mother.
I have no idea why he would choose to make his new wife a widow. I don’t understand why he would choose someone who was such a force for good in the lives of everyone and everything in his vicinity. Yet there is one thing I am certain of: because God permitted Jake Page to wander the world for 27 years, heaven is a lot more crowded than it would have been otherwise.
Til we meet again, JP. I adore you forever.
