Celebrating the life of Flonnie Belle Hunter
Thank you for signing Flonnie Belle Hunter's Guestbook
I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to the Hunter family. Right now there's no detour around grief, no shortcut through mourning. However 2 Corinthians 4:7 says that God can give us, "... power beyond what is normal", to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. We recover because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, "... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out ". Jesus was referring to the resurrection, this is our amazing hope! The Bible likens our hope to an anchor. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us, keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness. 2 Corinthians 1:3 describes our Creator as, "... the God of all comfort ". One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort be your comfort now during this time of sorrow.

I just heard about Aunt Flonnie passing. I have been wanting to go see her, but I will have to wait until I get to Heaven. May God be with you all, and give you Peace and Comfort.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some relief during this difficult time.
