I wanted to extend my sorrow for the lost of Ronald. I noticed he was a lover of nature and an artist. He seemed like a person that appreciated these things our creator has provided for us to enjoy.
I often think about this scriptures, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has even put eternity in their [mankind’s] heart.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11) We would like to enjoy earth’s beauty forever.... (Psalm 90:10) That is our heart’s desire. Ronald seemed liked he did enjoy the beauty of life.
God promises us that there will come a victory over death. The Bible repeatedly speaks about the elimination of death and God’s promise of everlasting life.
Jesus Christ stated: “This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.” (John 17:3) So the battle against death is not a hopeless one. Jesus confirms, that only God can win that battle for us.
I hope you will be comforted by our creators love for Ronald and your family. I hold you in my prayers.
