Now she’s playing for our Lord as His angelic host welcomes her aboard. No more pain as she plays, no more waking to troubled days. In our Lord her soul does rest, as we all know she’s so blessed. If you listen hard, you may hear on a windy day her music clear. For the heavens ring with its sound that we once heard here on the ground. Our sister Betty will be truly missed, and ourpiano her fingers will no longer kiss. But on golden keys they dance along as heaven rings with her music and song. ### v This poem was written in memory of Betty Hysong, who played the piano at Trinity Church of the Nazarene in North Haverhill for 40 years.

FITH AND LIFE by Dr. Dennis Prutow Lazarus died. His sisters wept. Four days later Jesus arrived. “Your brother will rise again” (John 11:23). Martha knew the hope of eternal life taught in Scripture. “Martha said to Him, ‘I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day’” (John I 1 :24). Jesus pointed Martha to the incarnation and personification of life. “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even ifhe dies’” (John 11:25). A person who enters the state of death, separation of the body and spirit, will return from death. The implication is clear. A time will come when dead bodies and departed souls will be reunited. Does this sound far fetched? To prove His point, Jesus turned to the tomb of Lazarus and “cried out with a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come forth.’ The man who had died came forth, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus said to them, ‘Unbind him, and let him go’” (John 11:43-44). Pretty impressive lesson. Jesus adds, “Everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?” (John 5:26). Literally, He says, “Everyone who lives and believes in Me will not die forever.” Death gives way to life. The big question is simple. “Do you believe this?” STEPS TO SALVATION How to receive Christ: 1. Admit your need. (I am a sinner.) 2. Be willing to turn from your sins (repent). 3. Believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. 4. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave. 5. Pray and invite Jesus Christ to come into your heart and control your life through the Holy Spirit (receive Him as Lord and Savior). Amen. Read the‘BibIe to growl Leanvon the Lord. You are now God’s new creation. He will never leave you.
