Julie Jarmon - May 16, 2017

Mattalyn, Stephen and the McMullen and Reker family and loved ones of precious little Colton have my deepest sympathy. No other pain will ever be greater than the pain of losing a child.
Isaiah 66:13a says: “As a mother comforts her son, so I (Jehovah Psalm 83:18) will keep comforting you.”
Revelations 21: 4; “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.”
Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on Him and He will sustain you in your time of grief. (Psalm 34:18)
(2 Corinthians 4:18) “while we keep our eyes, not on the things seen, but on the things unseen. For the things seen are temporary, but the things unseen are everlasting.”
1. When eyes of blind ones see again
And ears of deaf ones hear again,
When deserts blossom as the rose
And from parched ground fresh water flows,
When lame ones leap just like the hart,
When loved ones never have to part,
Such blessed times you’ll realize,
If you keep your eyes on the prize.
2. When tongues of mute ones speak again,
When old ones will be young again,
When earth will yield her rich increase
And all good things will never cease,
When songs of children fill the air,
When joy and peace are ev’rywhere,
Then, too, you’ll see the dead arise,
If you keep your eyes on the prize.
3. When wolves and lambs will feed as one,
When bears and calves bask in the sun,
A mere young boy will lead them all,
And they will heed his childish call.
When tears belong to yesterday,
When fears and pain have passed away,
You’ll see how God these things supplies,
If you keep your eyes on the prize.
Hopefully, it will do your heart good to please watch this beautiful video entitled “Keep Your Eyes on the Prize”
