Aurora, Colorado; God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters, for God can do wonders with a broken heart if you give him all of the pieces.

Pain breaks not the calm of the sweet twilight of age, for strength made perfect in weakness bears up with patience under it all. Ripe fruits of choice experience are gathered as the rare repast of life’s evening, and the soul prepares itself for rest.


The Lord’s people shall also enjoy light in the hour of death. Unbelief laments; the shadows fall, the night is coming, existence is ending. Ah no, crieth faith, the night is far spent, the true day is at hand. Light is come, the light of immortality, the light of a Father’s countenance. Gather up thy feet in thy bed; see the waiting bands of spirits!


Angeles waft thee away. Farewell, beloved one, thou art gone, thou wavest thine hand. Ah, now it is light. The pearly gates are opened; the golden streets shine in the jasper light. We cover our eyes, but thou beholdest the unseen, adieu, beloved, thou hast light at even-tide, such as we have not yet! AMEN!


A Greek Philosopher in 525 B.C. described pain with the following words;


“Pain, for which we cannot forget, falls drop by drop unto the heart, and in our despondency and against our will, come wisdom through the awesome grace of God!”


As for me, in the final analysis, “it is not what happens to us in life that defines who we are, but how well we rise after we fall.”
