Hope In The Resurrection

First let me say how very sorry I am for your loss. Dealing with the loss of someone you love is a deeply painful and emotional experience. You are no doubt filled with many emotions from sorrow to anger. No one is prepared for the death of someone that is close to them, which makes it a difficult task to plan a funeral in the midst of your grief.

As a Christian our hope is in the Resurrection and the knowledge that we will be with our loved ones again. Having your faith in God can help make the grieving process a little easier.

His lord said unto him,

Well done, thou good and faithful servant:

thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things:

enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
