Creativity forces us to pay attention to details. Watercolor painting brought much joy, enabling me to express feelings with my paintbrush.
For the believer, death leads to new birth and a life through all eternity with Jesus as well as those loved ones who have gone before.
Singing happy songs to a heavy heart is cruel. Don’t tell grieving people that their pain is a gift or make them sing praise songs when they don’t want to. Don’t tell them that other people are suffering more than they are.
I know Pain sometimes wins. There are just days we can’t rally, but we serve the Suffering Savior, a personal God who GETS Pain, who doesn't abandon us. Pain is how we share in the sufferings of Christ.
