Sarah, I had just responded to your e-mail because I've been out of town and just read your e-mail about your sister being in Hospice. After responding to your e-mail, I then went on the Caring Bridge website. My sympathies go out to you, her family and everyone who grieves her death.

I did mention in the e-mail that we do rejoice in the knowledge that we will be reunited with our loved ones in Heaven. I remember praying that my sister, Carol, could die. When I told her she responded " I wish others were in the same place". We grieve their earthly presence so much, but they are released from their pain and in a much better place.

My hope is that you can visualize God holding your sister in His arms and her limp body replaced with a Heavenly body.

Phil. 3:10-11 My one desire is to know Christ and the power of His resurrection, and to shre His sufferings in growing conformity with His death, in hope of somehow attaining the resurrection from the dead".  Paul believed that this is the gift that God gives to all who believe in Christ. This gift has nothing to do with the law.

Blessings, Ellen
