Life is full of may wonderful things but life is also hard, sad, tragic, and, unpredictable.
Perhaps the greatest blessing which come from tragedy, is the love and appreciation we developed for our Father in Heaven. We grow and develop spiritually by what we experience.
If there were no sadness, we would not know joy; without bitterness, we would not recognize sweetness.
May we all look at God is the Gardener in our life. He is growing and molding us into what we are to become. He has never left you and he never will. Find his goodness amongst your trials and lean upon them. When hard times come, because they always will, press forward and look to see how you can bring light your light into the world.
