If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Romans 14:8-9
Considering the sorrow in our hearts, it is with humble submission and reverence that we accept the will of God. God lent Vanessa to this world only for a little while. God never wanted, His beloved Vanessa, to live in fear, uncertainty, or confusion. Through her death, he offered her a glorious and joy-filled destination, a future free of pain, sorrow and sickness.
