My dear wife and I would like to extend our condolences for the loss of your loved one (Proverbs 17:17). At difficult times like this we realize how precious and fragile life can surely be (James 4:14). As your family and friends comfort one another, as a neighbor please also be comforted by the sure hope the Bible gives us for all those who have died (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). As recorded in the Bible, Jesus promised that one day he was going to bring back to life all those who have died (John 5:28, 29). That is why he encourages all of us to exercise faith in that promise, the life that Jesus gave in our behalf, and be blessed as we see that promise fulfilled (John 11:25; 3:16; 6:40;James 2:17). The Bible makes it clear that death is an "enemy" not only to mankind, but also to Almighty God (1 Corinthians 15:26). That is also why God promises to remove forever all the pain, suffering, wickedness, and death that mankind has had to endure for thousands of years (Revelation 21:3-5; Psalm 37:10,11,29). At that time soon, as the Bible indicates, both the living and the dead who are brought back to life will enjoy life, everlasting life, as God originally purposed for this earth thousands of years ago in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 1:28; Jeremiah 29:11). What a glorious day that will be for mankind who are doing what God asks of us, namely that we simply do His Will, not our own (1 John 2:17; 5:3; Proverbs 3:5,6). Please read and meditate on all these scriptures in your Bible and be comforted and blessed (Psalm 1:1-3; John 17:3). Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

An Angel At Work - May 16, 2017 Posted: May 16, 2017 | Last Revised: May 16, 2017 When Tony (Harvey's son) and I got married, we had planned a simple little church service and no reception. Sharon took it upon herself to invite everyone back to her and Harvey's home, where she had prepared a wonderful brunch for everyone. She also had a beautiful cake made for us. If it wasn't for her loving heart and generosity, we wouldn't have had any reception at all. Tony and I will never forget what she did for us that day. Sharon was one of the sweetest, caring, generous, loving and giving people I ever had the pleasure to know. We didn't get nearly enough time with her. Take care of her Lord, you got yourself a pure angel.
