I know this has to be a VERY DIFFICULT time for your family since you were all very close to your father.So,I wanted to send All of you some encouraging words,that hopefully will help give you peace at such a difficult time.We will be remembering All of you in our prayers. II Cor. 1:3,4-Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of All Comfort; Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort in which we ourselves are comforted of God. Phil.4:6,7-...And the peace of God, which passes All understanding, shall guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Isaiah 55:10,11-For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and returns not, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth;it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing unto where I sent it. Isaiah 61:1-3- To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified. While praying about your Dad's passing, the Lord gave me these last couple scriptures to give to your family, as a gift from Him,(the Lord). I feel like it is So appropriate for your Dad's life with the things that he enjoyed while here,(marriage, family, and the nature that God created).
