#256 – Elaine’s Memorial Service

You may already know that Elaine entered into the presence of Jesus at 6:55 this morning in the living room of our home. I was with her, and it was all so peaceful. I am grateful.

You will see in the “Obituary, The Message,” that the services are as follows:

–  Calling hours on Sunday afternoon the 25th, 3:00-6:00 at Fairlawn Mennonite Church, 8520 Emerson Rd., Apple Creek, OH 44606
–  Monday, 9:00, Private burial at Pleasant View Mennonite Church, in North Lawrence, OH
–  Memorial service at Fairlawn at 11:00.

The memorial service will be livestreamed on YouTube at https://youtu.be/0URhy0FEPB4

How could a person be angry with God, when it is Satan who brought pain and death (present and eternal) upon us, after which God provided a way for us to experience Life (present and eternal) through Jesus our Savior, even in this broken world? Elaine is experiencing the fullness of that Life right now in a way that I can only look forward to.

I praise Him for His goodness in the face of the realities of this world that is so defiled by Satan’s rule.

I am weak but He is strong.
