We want to believe
the world is understandable.
That life is fair,
That things make sense.
We want to believe
that if we're careful enough,
work hard enough,
try hard enough,
we and those we love
will be safe from anything bad.

It's one of the biggest questions
human wrestle with -
why things sometimes aren't fair.
But even though we don't always have
a neat answer to why things happen,
we do have each other...
and we have our faith.

Just a simple kind of faith
that somehow, someday,
suffering will end,
good will be rewarded,
love will endure,
pain will be forgotten,
light will scatter darkness,
and our spirits will go on.

Hmmmm, I know you have been struggling with something and I pray pray pray for God to give you peace. For you to crawl up in the sweet and gentle arms of the savior and whisper all of your troubles and burdens to him. Then let him take them on. For Jesus suffered in his time on Earth, but in heaven there will be no more sorrow and no more pain. Grace, Peace, and Love be with you sweet friend.
Squishy hugs,
