An Unexpected Bloggie Break...

Due to the recent passing of my grandfather,
we will be traveling over the next week or so
and I will be taking a break from blogging.
The giveaway, however, will continue.

Though in this time of sorrow,
we are not without hope
and we are rejoicing that we know
we will see this loved one in Heaven one day.

"But I would not have you
to be ignorant, brethren,
concerning them which are asleep {deceased},
that ye sorrow not,
even as others which have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,
even so them also which sleep in Jesus
will God bring with him.
For this we say unto you
by the word of the Lord,
that we which are alive and remain
unto the coming of the Lord
shall not prevent them which are asleep.
{prevent: or, come before, or, anticipate, or, precede}
For the Lord himself shall descend
from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel,
and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them
in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
~ 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

I pray his home going will be full of warm memories and few tears for you will see him again!

Madeleine said...

Oh dear, I am so sorry. If your granddaddy was as precious to you as mine was to me, I will be in prayer for your heartache. Yes there is the hope of things to come, and we are eternally grateful for that hope, but it kind of doesn't stop the heartache here on earth.

I pray for a safe journey, and am thankful your beloved is with you during this time.
