The last month or so has been a rough one for us at Strong Tower Fellowship. Two of our beloved friends were called home; first Ray Bailey on December 28, 2017 and then Joanne Myers on February 1, 2018. It really hurts to loose brothers and sisters with whom you have worshipped with, served with, stood with, walked with, prayed with, laughed with, and cried with. I know many of you are grieving these loses and so am I, but understand that grieving is a natural thing. It is necessary for the healing process to begin. God built grieving in to the human heart as a way to release the pain of suffering or loss. Thinking of the inexpressible joy that our friends are experiencing right now in heaven is one way of easing the pain. Another is thinking of the good times that we shared with them and thanking God for allowing them to be a part of our lives. Finally, we must revel in the thought that someday, a day that the Lord has set, we too will join them and what a joyful homecoming that will be.
