"She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.

Celebrating the life of Maude O. Pittman
Thank you for signing Maude O. Pittman's Guestbook
I was sorry to read about the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to scriptures such as [John chapter 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations chapter 21:3-5] which says in part that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes ,by swallowing up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.
