Jesus assures us there will be a resurrection (John 5:28, 29) One day our tears of sorrow will turn to tears of joy as we welcome our loved ones back. One day soon Jehovah God will exercise his power and desire to resurrect by means of his Son Christ Jesus. In the meantime may you find refuge under his wings until the troubles pass. ( Psalms 57:1)"
