Grieving


Taken from Karen Kingsbury's book Reunion (pgs 363-364)

"Human suffering is too big to get our arms around. Don't try to figure out what God's teaching you by this, don't try to understand it and don't try to understand God. If He could fit into your idea of Him, He'd be too small for any of us."

"We never own the people in our lives. We love them, yes, but they are on loan from God. We have them for a moment and then they're gone. Go ahead and grieve because you miss them. But while you're grieving, don't get mad at God for the minutes you'll miss with them. Thank Him for the minutes you had."
