This is by far the most difficult share that I have posted up in this thread. I know many families are going to through tragic times right now and we have been lucky in that respect but holy cow this past year has been one of the worse we have experienced with our friends. Please tell me there is a Plan. Another neighbor few houses away decided living was too difficult. Good friend. No indication whatsoever of any internal struggles. We went to their anniversary party, loving couple. I am so sad and keep asking myself why. This past year has been so sad you have to keep telling yourself there is a plan. There has to be. We never have had so many life challenges that is testing our core beliefs. I just don't understand the why. Children and grandchildren. They should be enough to fight through whatever seems so over whelming. We have a son, family and two beautiful granddaughters that provide so much joy life's every day struggles just melt away. My wife and I are sitting here numb trying to grasp why. This one really hit home and it hurts badly. This week is going to be very difficult.

LRH is a community, a family of unseen friends, a respite from daily life struggles that is trying to seep into your life. We support each other, challenge each other, offer help to each other, laugh at each other, extend a hand to each other and yes sometimes offer a shoulder to each other. I see this on LRH.

Why isn't life like LRH?

Sorry for your loss and the pain associated.
There are many things that we don't have answers for and can't understand.
There is only one thing that get's me through every single day and the truth I follow.
MY FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST - MY EVERLASTING SAVIOR.
Keep your faith because it is the only true thing in life.
God Bless

Muddy,

I'm certainly sorry to hear of your struggles of late. I think the last two years have been trying times for so many. The Lord's plan often seems to us in disarray, although not from His point of view. This poem from Annie Johnson Flint, who knew much of suffering, has been a great comfort to me - I hope it will to you also my friend:

He Giveth More Grace

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added affliction He addeth His mercy;
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Our Father's full giving is only begun.

Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.

His love has no limit; His grace has no measure.
His pow'r has no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again!

Annie Johnson Flint

Amen Brother. He's what's kept me hanging on. In reality, He was hanging on to me instead of the other way around.

You've had a rough go of it lately for sure Muddy. I too had a friend a few weeks ago do the same thing. Tragic, senseless. I wish I had the answers you seek but do not. I don't think there are all the answers when something like this happens. Some peoples demons just get to be too much. Only solace I can say is there's no more suffering where they are now. Hang in there Muddy.

I pray our Lord grants you and his family peace in these hard times.

Do not loose faith, we are all here only for a while. Some stay here longer than others, and why some leave the way they do is not for us to know the reasons. Just have faith he is resting in a better place.

God bless you and his family

Luis
