Many families close to my home lost a dear loved one yesterday, including the 'killer's' family. It could only be more painful if they do not know with absolute certainty their loved ones are indeed at home with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. If God has granted you another gift of breath today, speak of Christ and seek Him with everything you have. His time is not our time, and His will is not our will, but His promise of eternal life will never be broken to those who ask and seek Him.
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
