Message: While it is indeed sad that you are mourning the loss of your dear Elisa, it saddens God more. In the days ahead, you will continue to reflect on seemingly small, yet precious memories. However, be comforted in knowing that just as we have memories, almighty God remembers too. The difference is, God has the ability to restore perfect life to those in His memory.
