Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Marta Felber offers just such a voice -- caring, hopeful, always pointing ahead to a tomorrow that will be a little easier than today.
Having experienced her own spouse's death, Felber is never glib or simplistic.
She knows the grief her readers are feeling and she encourages them to give it full expression.
At the same time, she offers sound, practical suggestions on how to navigate difficult days. This book shies away from none of the difficult issues of bereavement.
Felber gently urges her readers toward careful, honest examination of the issues they face.
