Daddy...


"When you are sorrowful look again in your heart,
and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for
that which has been your delight."

Kahlil Gibran

I found this quote a few months ago and it really spoke to my heart. I hope it encourages you as well in your time of mourning.

Hugs!

“Dear friend, have you found that trouble cuts the cords that tie you to earth? When the Lord takes a child, there is one less cord to fasten you to this world and another band to draw you toward heaven. When money vanishes and business goes wrong, we frequent the prayer meeting, the prayer closet and the Bible. Trials drive us from earth. If all went well, we would begin to say, “Soul, relax”. But when things go amiss, we want to be gone. When the tree shakes, the bird flies away. Happy is the trouble that loosens our grip of earth.”

- From Beside Still Waters by Charles Spurgeon
