First of all let me say I am sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. I pray that she was saved because if so, she is now in Heaven with Christ. Believe me my friend, we all go to meet God sooner or later and our time is chosen by the Lord. Remember all things work together for good for those love God and for those who are called according to His Purpose. That means we my not understand why some things happen, but God does and we should trust HIM. Please feel free to write me. In Jesus Name Greg

First let me express my deepest compassion and sympathy for the loss of your mom. I am so very sorry that happened and my heart truly does go out to you. I have a special place in my heart for brokenhearted people. God doesn't "take", Jesus said, "The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy." But I came that they may have life and life abundantly. Your mom is alive in heaven. Know that she's in a better place and send up prayers to God and ask Father God to say hello to her for you.

Hi; I am soooo sorry about your mom :( I lost my dad many years ago and he was wonderful too. The loss that cut the deepest was that of my big brother in '81 and someone once told me "God took away your god." She was wrong. The man who shot him took him from us. God knew it would happen but it was not God being vindictive. Anyway, bless you dear.

My Mom's friend (very nice person) died of cancer. It was hard for us, but I believe that God had a greater plan in this. After her death, I started to minister the Gospel to my family & friends like never before. Maybe her death was God's way to help me get off my butt and get started doing this, because you never know when you will pass, and if Heaven or Hell awaits.

You know I almost asked God that when my mother went to be with Him when I was just a teenager. Imagine if Barabas had died instead of our wonderful Jesus where would we be today? God wants to show His love and strength through us. When my mother passed on 2 Cor1:3-4 and the song "Because He lives" gave me strength to go on...Your best days are ahead of you. God bless you.

Because he didn't want to. It was her time to go. I understand how you feel, I too lost my mom almost 5 years ago. I do not blame God for I know in my heart she is with him. I do not wish her back here being in pain, and fighting with the enemy. My mom has ran her race, kept the faith, she fought a good fight and now she is at rest. don't try to understand God's ways, it will drive you crazy. We are not meant to understand all of his ways, we may not want to know the reason behind his ways.

I am so sorry for the sudden loss of your mother, I know it is devastating. I sincerely hope your mother was a Christian, because if she was, she is in a much better place now with no heartaches or pains. And if you are Christian, you will join her some day and have a wonderful celebration for eternity. My prayers are with you.

I am sorry for the loss of your mother.

We are all (good or bad) mortal and will all die sooner or later. Some suddenly, some slowly, some old, some young, some from natural causes, some from accident. That is life.

God did not "take" your mother. As unfortunate or untimely as it may be, she died, plain and simple.

Hebrews 9:27, "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"

After my mother's death, I felt a new appreciation for Christ. Not only had he died for me, but he died for my mother, who was very much a born-again woman. I have no doubt she is in Heaven now with a healthy body, seeing Jesus.

I know you are grieving. I asked the same things when my mother went into a coma after a stroke and later died. It is a year later and I still miss her very much. The song "Blessed Be Your Name" helped me through that and also "Valley Song."

Our ways are not God's ways and we are not always going to understand. But as Christians we know that through Jesus's sacrifice we will all see each other again in Heaven one day.
---Annie on 9/26/05

We do not always understand God's decisions, but just remember that you mother is in a much better place now and if you have God's plan of salvation then you to can see her again one day in Heaven. God picks the prettiest flowers for his garden in Heaven.
