"For this is the message you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. We know love by this, that he laid down his life for us -- and we ought to lay down our lives for one another."
~ 1 John 3:11,16
I wish I could explain why some things happen in our lives, but I can't. However what I am learning is this...
Everything that is, is given by the God of love. All is grace. Light and water, shelter and food, work and free time, children, parents and grandparents, birth and death - it is all given to us.
The important thing is how we deal with it.
Why? So that we can say thanks: to God, thanks to each other, thanks to all and everyone.
Stay in God's grip!

Dear Lord, in Your knowing of me, help me to receive all things in the way that You have meant for me to receive them. Amen.
