A Word Of Consolation
If a tiny baby could think, it would be afraid of
birth. To leave the only world it has known
would seem a kind of death. But immediately
after the birth the child would find itself in
loving arms, showered with affection and cared
for at every moment. Surely the baby would
say, “I was foolish to doubt God’s plan for me.
This is a beautiful life.”
Passing through death is really a birth into a
new and better world. Those who are left
behind should not grieve as if there were no
hope. Life is changed, not taken away. Our
dear ones live on, in a world beautiful beyond
anything we can imagine.
“Do not grieve too much,” they say to us.
“We are living and are still with you.”
