For the month of August, we're sharing Miracle Mondays that we received in the past but weren't able to publish. Today, we've got a testimony from Brother Larry Champine that he submitted for the October 2014 theme, which was "death."
The youngest of seven children, I was raised by loving parents in another faith. My father was one of the youngest of 14 children, and his father was one of 13 children. Needless to say, in my growing up years, I attended many, many family funerals. (I even grew to dread the smell of funeral flowers.)
Looking back, I recognize that although there was a devotion to our faith and we were reminded of God's promise of Heaven, it did not seem to bring much comfort. These occasions were always very sad.
