Scripture says in Ecclesiastes that there is “a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance” ~ right now we weep and mourn, and we ask you to pray with us that we will be blessed with grace to laugh and dance.
May our good Lord and King have mercy upon us.
Today our fourth child, Promise Anastasis, has joined two older siblings in the ranks of heaven. Our hearts grieve heavily for the loss of our baby, and we look to our Heavenly Father for comfort in trial & hope for the future.
Anastasis (Greek for Resurrection) ~ John 11:25-26 “Jesus said… ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in Me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die.’“
Please weep, mourn, and pray with us. And may we look ahead together with eyes of faith to the promise God has given us of the inheritance waiting in heaven for us.
“Lord Jesus Christ! the God and Father of our According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
