Nadya’s Story

My name is Nadya and I'm engaged to Darrell, my boyfriend of five years who finally proposed to me. He and I first met when I got my purse snatched and I went to the Pudding Police station to report it. He was on duty and I told him what happened. I was walking through …

Parting

She's on my lap. We are facing each other. "So, this is goodbye." I nod. Her eyes fill with tears. She puts her arms around my neck. I hug her tightly. My heart's breaking. We tried so hard to make our relationship work but we just couldn't seem to go back to the way things …

The Blessed Assurance

And now, dear brothers, I want you to know what happens to a Christian when he dies so that when it happens, you will not be full of sorrow, as those are who have no hope.  For since we believe that Jesus died and then came back to life again, we can also believe that when …

No More Sadness

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away - Revelation 21:4 She was in the shower when it happened.  The pain was deep and the tears flowed like the water …

I Love Him

"You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the LORD" - Leviticus 19:28, NKJV I never thought of getting a tattoo until I met and fell in love with Roger.  We met at a book fair four years ago.  We were book lovers …

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you - Isaiah 43:2 The Christian life is not about the absence of sorrow, suffering, pain and trials but …

In Every Season…Praise Him

It was on a Wednesday evening when *Dora was listening to Christian music on YouTube.  The artist was someone she had never heard of before until her aunt sent her an email about him.  The songs were very uplifting but the one which really got to her was the one called, Holy, Holy, Holy.  It …

Coping As Best As We Can

It has been over a month since we lost our dear son.  There are times when I feel fine and there are other times when I break down and sob uncontrollably because the pain is so deep.  It's deep, deep down and it hurts.  The void he has left in our lives is like a …

Cause of Death

He will swallow up death for all time, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces - Isaiah 25:8 Less than a  month after our son died, we found out that the cause of death was a "sudden acute severe Asthma attack."  The attack was so sudden that nothing could have prevented …
