Losing a loved one is difficult and during those times we need comfort and understanding. What better place can we turn but to God's word the Bible. Read it daily and he promises that all who do so will have their thoughts and feelings soothed by "the peace of God that surpasses all understanding." (Philippians 4:6,7) (Acts 24:15) This will not only help you through your grieving process but also will allow you to cope. "He will make you firm, he will make you strong." (1 Peter 5:10) Go to www.jw.org to read the Bible and for answers to some of life's big questions.
