Goodbye Sweet Girl

This is gonna be short. I just wanted to let you know that Bethy died today. She's now in heaven with her loving Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you so much for praying for her. She fought the good fight and finished the race. I can picture God holding Bethy in his arms and telling her, "Well done, my good and faithful servant." We who are left here on this earth are grieving, but Beth is experiencing joy beyond what are tiny minds can grasp. She was such a beautiful girl and an inspiration to countless people.  Please keep her family in your prayers, as I trust you will do. Now to Him who is able to do more than we could ask or imagine, be glory, honor, and praise forever and ever!

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

-1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

In Christ,
