Betty, I love you so much and I am so sorry to hear about Wendell. My heart aches for the Bond family to lose in death your precious loved one. Words are so limited that can give comfort, so (What would Wendell say?") I would like to share with you beautiful scripture where our loving heavenly Father, Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18), invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalm 34:18
None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection.
Our savior, Jesus, promises us at: John 6: 40; "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day".
And again at: John 5: 28; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..."
And also at: John 11:23-25; "Jesus said to her: "I am the resurrection and the life." The one who exercises faith in me, even tho he dies, will come to life."
I pray that Jesus's promise to reunite us with our loved ones on resurrection day will carry you through the difficult days ahead and gradually replace your tears of grief with tears of joy as you reflect on your precious memories of happier times with Wendell.
