As we know, often when our love ones die - we wonder -= what's next. However, we have been given a promise that in the very near future death will be no more (Revelation 21:3,4) We need not feel a sorrow that is linked with so many questions. Our love one are not under any circumstances - lingering between Heaven and Hell. (Ecclesiastes 9:5)
How I deal with my sorrow is to cherish the loving memories I have of the departed love one. I know my love one is in a deep sleep - free from any emotional and physical pain. I think of all of the loving and kind conversation we had. I try to remember the many words of wisdom that was given to me by the departed one.
We are not hopeless in respects to what the future holds for all of us. I am truly looking forward to a time when I will be re-united with my love one. The very thought of know that Our Heavenly Father will hold true to his words bring me so much comfort in my life now and what I have to see in the future.
