At times people say the strangest things:
" I know how you feel"

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! (even myriads)..... I do believe my love one is sleeping , in God's memory and will be awoke again someday.... God does not take our love ones away (James 1:13) Satan's the blame of our suffering..
