"But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who have fallen asleep, so that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have died."
-1 Thessalonians 4.13-14.My grandmother fell asleep in Christ today. She was eighty-nine and leaves five children and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I thank God for her life of loving service and for her trust in Jesus. I will miss her. But I grieve with hope because at Jesus' return God will bring with him those who have died, including her. May she rest until the day when death is no more. Come, Lord Jesus.
