"You can remarry"

"You can have another child"

And sometimes you feel like saying "be quiet!" You do not know how I feel. Just leave me alone! I was encouraged not to take things to heart ( Ecc. 7:21) because I realize that some people just do not know what to say...

Song "Life Without End At Last"

Can you see with your mind’s eye,

Peoples dwelling together?

Sorrow has passed. Peace at last!

Life without tears or pain.

Sing out with joy of heart!

You too can have a part.

Live for the day when you’ll say,

“Life without end, at last!”

The Source of Our Suffering

 I was reading a scriptural thought today and once again I was reassured that bad things we suffer do not come from God. Many people say that God needed one more angel... God as plenty of angels!
