I am sorry for your loss. May looking forward to the fulfillment of nthese scriptures be of enouragement to you. Isaiah 33:24, and 25:8. These scriptures tell us that the God of love will bring an end to sickness and death. Gods son, Jesus christ spoke about the resurection hope, in John 5:28,29. That means that we will haave the opportunity tosee our loved ones again. Sounds to good to be true? Just think if Adam and Eve would have followed the instructions at Genesis 2:17, mankind would not be suffering sickness and death. That leads to this question, will the God of love ever fulfill his original purpose? Please read Psalms 37:10,11,29, and 72:7,8. There you will find the answer. I hope that this letter and the sriptures within wil give you and your family some comfort and asured hope.
