Having heard of your most recent loss, I felt like leaving a brief post. I too well know the grief of losing love ones and that at times like these, it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us. Something that has helped me to deal with such loses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus. Recorded for our comfort, at John 5:28,29. I hope that when you are feeling up to it, you will take a few minutes, and look up these Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible. Also I hope. that this note finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.

I really hope this will bring you comfort.
Resurrections During Jesus’ Ministry
Some 900 years later, a resurrection occurred a short distance north of Shunem outside the village of Nain. As Jesus Christ and his disciples traveled from Capernaum and neared the gate of Nain, they met a burial procession, and Jesus caught sight of a widow who had lost her only son. Jesus told her to stop weeping. Luke, a physician, described what happened next: “With that [Jesus] approached and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still, and he said: ‘Young man, I say to you, Get up!’ And the dead man sat up and started to speak, and he gave him to his mother.” (Luke 7:14, 15) Those who witnessed this miracle glorified God. News of the resurrection spread southward into Judea and the surrounding district. Interestingly, the disciples of John the Baptizer heard of it and reported the miracle to John. He, in turn, dispatched them to find Jesus and ask him whether He was the expected Messiah. Jesus told them: “Go your way, report to John what you saw and heard: the blind are receiving sight, the lame are walking, the lepers are being cleansed and the deaf are hearing, the dead are being raised up, the poor are being told the good news.”—Luke 7:22.
The best known of Jesus’ resurrection miracles was that performed in behalf of his close friend Lazarus. In this case, there was a delay between Lazarus’ death and Jesus’ arrival at the family home. When Jesus finally reached Bethany, Lazarus had been dead for four days. When Jesus instructed that the stone covering the entrance to the burial chamber be removed, Martha objected, saying: “Lord, by now he must smell, for it is four days.” (John 11:39) Yet, any deterioration of Lazarus’ body did not prevent the resurrection. At Jesus’ command, “the man that had been dead came out with his feet and hands bound with wrappings, and his countenance was bound about with a cloth.” The subsequent actions of Jesus’ enemies prove that it was indeed Lazarus who had come back to life.—John 11:43, 44; 12:1, 9-11.
What do we conclude from these resurrection accounts? Each resurrected individual returned to life as the same person. All were recognized, even by their closest relatives. None of the resurrected spoke of what had occurred during the short time they were dead. None spoke of traveling to another world. Apparently, they all returned in good health. For them, it was as though they slept for a while and then woke up, even as Jesus intimated. (John 11:11) Nevertheless, after some time each of these died again. But soon in the Kingdom in the Lord's Prayer the dead will be brought back to life here on earth to live forever not die again.(John 5:28,29; Ps 37:11,29) Would you like to know more or just want more comfort?

while words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the Joy of having our Heavenly Father, "wipe away the tears from all faces, and death will be no more." Revelation 21:4.. May the BELL Family find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who has the will to remember every detail about MRS. NARCISSUS BELL.. May our Heavenly Father sustain you at this time of such great loss.
