Today we shall be engaging in bible verses about grief. No matter how good life is treating us all, there will still be a time of our life for mourning, bearing an unimaginable sorrow from the loss of someone so daring to our hearts.

He lost his properties, children, and everything that he has worked for, and a deadly disease greatly threatened even his life.
