This shouldn't take a Christian by surprise though. If you're a student of the Word, we have been told that strange things would begin to happen as the "end approaches." The end of this world as we know it is quickly coming. Jesus is coming back to rapture His bride - the Christians. We've heard it for years, except lately we don't seem to hear as much about it.
Maybe it's time to listen...to read...to pray...to seek God for our lost loved ones. Don't be as cold as the spring has been lately. Stay close to the fire...close to Him! For a Christian "the end" is only the end of sorrow, pain, and heartache and "the beginning" of life eternal!
