    Oh my! Such a beautiful, and young lady to live her body so soon! But what can we, who are still in the body say against that situation? Nothing! For we would be speaking against God’s plan for her existence in the body.

    David said to God, the Lord: ” Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book, they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them.”

    Yes indeed! We were predestined to exist in the body, for the glory of Almighty God of Life in Love. We have no power to forgo His plan.

    DNO, I am with you with this statement on behalf of her loved ones who remain in the body: “Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted”, says Christ Jesus

    Their comfort will be from the fact that their “Esther”, has not gone to a grave to “sleep” as the World believes. But she has gone to the “Spirit World” to continue her perfection in Love, for her soul left in Love–I know that is true!
