I lost my brother that was two years older than me in 1985 of Leukemia, and my father died of lung cancer that year. In 1989 my mother died of some rear kind of cancer and my best friend of 20 years killed himself. But nothing could have compared my for Rebekah's death in 2009.

And, taking the hand of the young child, he said to her: “Tal´i·tha cu´mi,” which, translated, means: “Maiden, I say to you, Get up!” ... And immediately the maiden rose and began walking, for she was twelve years old. And at once they were beside themselves with great ecstasy.

This is a scripture from the Bible book of Mark (chapter 5 verses 41 and 42)

We can only imagine how those parents felt. Their precious child had died. But now Jesus had reunited them. He had given her life again. The verse says that the parents were "beside themselves with great ecstasy." 

We are beside ourselves with great heartache and sadness because of our loss and don't see the way out sometimes. But Jesus proved that he is greater than even death itself.  He promised that one day he would reunite every family.

But for now many of us are left with heartache and confusion. 

Why did God take my loved one?
Why does God cause so much suffering and grief?
What really happens to us when we die?
Why do we die?

To find answers to these questions please follow the links below. I found the information there very educational and comforting.
