One moment he is standing talking with us answering our questions and then the next moment he begins to…rise in the air.
How could this happen? Why is this happening?
It was if gravity lost its power for a moment. He did not float it was though a invisible power pulled him upward.
He waved goodbye and became smaller and smaller and then he vanished in the clouds. All of us were stunned. It was like a dream.
I felt like shouting, “Don’t leave us!” But he was gone.
We just kept staring at the clouds wondering if he would come down again.
He has disappeared before and we thought he would reappear. So we just waited.
All of a sudden two beings that came from nowhere-heavenly messengers beautiful and powerful stood by us and spoke up. I thought I would have a heart attack. They told us,
“Galileans why do you keep staring into heaven? This SAME JESUS that was taken up from you into heaven will come again back to earth in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
I was excited and sad. I missed him already.
