The sorrow of the faithful
is not that of permanent loss,
but the tender sense of sadness
that comes in saying good-bye for now
to someone we love.
May today''s sorrow give way
to the peace and
comfort of God''s love.

Minister T.M.V.

Never does one feel as utterly helpless as in trying to speak comfort for such great bereavement. I will not attempt to try. Time is the only comforter for the loss of a loved one. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. I wanted to offer my heartfelt condolences, prayers and support to all of you. Please know that God is caring for you through the hands and hearts of others.

NEVER FORGET...THE WILL OF GOD…
The will of God will never take you
Where the grace of God cannot keep you,
Where the arms of God cannot support you,
Where the riches of God cannot supply your needs,
Where the power of God cannot endow you.

The will of God will never take you
Where the spirit of God cannot work through you,
Where the wisdom of God cannot teach you,
Where the army of God cannot protect you,
Where the hands of God cannot mold you.

The will of God will never take you
Where the love of God cannot enfold you,
Where the mercy of God cannot sustain you,
Where the peace of God cannot calm your fears,
Where the authority of God cannot overrule for you.

The will of God will never take you
Where the comfort of God cannot dry your tears,
Where the Word of God cannot feed you,
Where the miracles of God cannot be done for you,
Where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.

My prayers and condolences go out to the family. May God bless you exceedingly and abundantly above all you ask or think in Christ Jesus our Lord.

JOHN5:28,29 TELLS US JESUS AFTER BRINGING LAZURUS TO LIFE THAT WE WILL BE BACK.THE GOOD TO LIFE AND BAD TO A TRAIL PERIOD. THEN IF WE OBEY JESUS AFTER HE GIVE US THE INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO LIVE ON THE "NEW EARTH" (REV 21:3-4 )WE WILL FINALLY HAVE OUR PRAYERS MATERIALIZE THAT OUR MOTHERS MADE US SAY FROM MATT 6:10.
