Hey Eileen,not all of the post came through here's the other half:
God through Christ has taken the sting from deathby freeing us from its dominion.Our earthly life is a preludeto a glorious new awakening,and death is an open doorthat leads us into eternal life.
The Christian faith makes it possible for usto nobly except that which cannot be changed,to meet disappoint and sorrow with an inner poise,and to absorb the most intense painwithout abandoning our sense of hope,for we know, as Paul testified
"In life or in death,in Spain or in Rome,that all things work together for goodto them that love Godto them who are the called..."
- Love in ActionMartin Luther King Jr. 1963
