Why Rejoice?



 

Have you read it? available here

'Why rejoice?' asked Victoria (reading yesterday's post) as she thought of the littles who just lost their beloved mommy.

“Because she is with Jesus and not suffering anymore! The battle is won!”

We mourn because of love
Yet, rejoice in death’s grief
Because she is with Jesus and
Everlasting relief

We mourn for death impedes
The fellowship of touch
And though the body selfish pleads
For the old days and such

…we would not call her back
To this old world of pain
Because she is with Jesus and
Someday we’ll meet again

...for all of us who felt like we knew her.


Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. 2 Cor.3:12

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.  Matt.5:4

All around the world we mourn Kara's passing but rejoice in her victory! All around the world prayers are prayed on the Tippett family's behalf.

    1. Thank-you Susan. We never know when it will be our turn to cross the Great Divide but if we have the hope of Jesus then all else is will be okay.
