I am sadden to hear of the loss of your husband. Loosing anyone we love is difficult. But we know that our loss is only temporary.
Jesus said: “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” – John 11:25
The Bible teaches that the dead will live again.
Jesus Christ himself said: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” – John 5:28, 29
May you keep these thoughts and promises close to your heart.
Your friend,
Chris Wahl
