Cory,Xavier and family. Our prayers continue for your healing. I just wanted to share the shortest verse in the bible. Jesus wept..John 11:35 shortest verse yet so powerful..this verse reminds us our Lord and Saviour understands the grief of loosing a loved one. Christ himself wept at the sorrow Mary and Martha the sisters felt at the loss of their brother Lazarus. May our God who understands grief at the fullest bring you all comfort.
