This is the time of year most of us reflect on Jesus and the outstanding sacrifice he made for all of mankind,he gave his perfect life (ro.8:34).

My deepest sympathy in the loss of your beloved family member. Death causes such deep sadness and pain. Our loving heavenly father feels the pain as well. So he offers us words of comfort from his word the Bible to help soothe the pain. Psalm 147:3 says; He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. And the wonderful promise for the future at Hosea 13:14 which says: From the power of the grave I (God) will redeem them; From death I will recover them. This promise is a welcome relief from the sting of death!~ R. Sweatman Decatur, GA
