A short poetic comfort for these dear ones: "In the midst of deep sorrows of the day, Joy will surely e'er come in the morning. Wait upon the Lord, your courage He'll stay, His sweet presence will be your adorning." We invite all to remember to pray for their loved ones. We rejoice that souls that are saved, go to be immediately Home to Glory. "Absent from the body,... present with the Lord." 2 Corinthians 5:8
The POEM is FREE and not for sale. We invite any to copy and share with others to be an encouragement during these sad days of tears mingled with eternal joys. How we rejoice to see the marvelous example of the folks in Charleston responding in Christian grace, wisdom, compassion, and love. Our prayers are with Governor Nikki Haley and all of the fine leadership in each department there!
