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.”
