"But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as the rest who have no hope...For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words."
1 Thessalonians 4:13, 16-18
I am holding on to these words anew this week. If the Lord should bring our family to your mind today, I assure you that not a prayer will be wasted on us today as we stop to remember our sweet Desi Elyse.
