Sometimes I feel others pain so intensely it hurts. Sometimes I feel their joy in exponential equivalents. The joy I will gladly take and can certainly tolerate, but the pain, can be unbearable.
Today a friend lost a child. I was all prepared to write about love and how much my husband means to me, then I read the message. It happened that I was talking to my husband on the phone when I saw the news...I couldn't even say good-bye to him.
I wish I could ignore the pain of loss, but it's one of those things you have to face head on, or risk getting wiped out by it in the long run.
My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Psalms 62:7
