  • We Can Have Hope, Even In Our Grief

     Death is always a separation that brings ensuing sorrow and grief to the family or loved ones that are left behind. The departure of our loved ones in Christ can only be softened by Jesus’ presence and by God’s Word. The Lord promises to be with us and comfort us. Mathew 5:4 – “God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted” (NLT).
