Dear Family of Evelyn Ross
I read about the loss of your loved in the paper and felt compelled to write. I know the pain and heartache your feeling as I lost my mother seven years age to a massive stroke. Even tho it’s been seven years, it seems the pain of such a loss never goes away. Death really makes the heart ache. No wonder the Bible refers to it as an enemy! (1 Corinthians 15:26) We all find ourselves asking,”why do we have to suffer, get sick, grow old and eventually die?” Is that all three is to life? In answer to these questions, we are personally invited by our loving and compassionate Heavenly Father, to look to Him and His word the Bible. So, let’s do that. Because of our inherited sin and imperfection thru Adam and Eve, we are plagued with sickness and death. This is found in the Bible book of Romans, the 5TH. Chapter and verse 12. But, God in His Almighty wisdom, made a way out of this doom and gloom for mankind. God wants life for us. A happy, healthy, eternal life. So, God made a provision. He sent His Son, Christ Jesus as a ransom sacrifice so that all those who put faith in that provision might enjoy Gods promise of everlasting life. This promise from God is found John 3:16 &36. Christ Jesus was willing to sacrifice His life for mankind. What love He and His Heavenly Father have for us!! Our God of mercy has even promised us a resurrection of our loved ones as shown in the Bible Book of John 5:28 &29. Yes, in this life, we do have much hope for the future. Revelation 21: 1-4 tells us that the time will come when we will no more fear death or endure pain. God will soon wipe these out forever. Then we will only have tears of joy as we welcome our loved back from deaths grip. I myself have found great comfort in this knowledge and I’m sure you do too. What a joy it will be to see our loved ones again!! May this bring you and your family peace and comfort in your time of grief. If you care to respond, I would love to hear from you.
sorry to here about your mom. i will try to come saturday at shiloh.
