In a perfect world, life doesn't hurt. There is no pain.
We don't have to shed tears because all is well. Reality
tells us that we don't live in a perfect world. Instead, we
do have pain, sorrow, and tragedies that come into
our lives quite unexpectedly. Life isn't always fair, and
we are left asking that age-old question, "Why?".
I don't think we'll ever answer the "why" question good
enough to satisfy us, BUT we can understand that we are
not alone in our pain. In this world, there are many sufferers,
and we can each learn from one another and gain new
strength and hope as we travel this road of grief.
As has been said before, sorrow is a new language that
we must learn, and it gives us new eyes in which we view
all of life. At first we feel like foreigners struggling to
find our way without a map. After a while, though, we
begin to struggle less until finally we find a new place
to call home, we learn the new language, and we have
keener, sharper eyesight in which to view life's beauty.
If you are struggling today in the land of sorrow, hold on
and continue putting one foot forward until you find your
place of level ground. Trust that as you travel this often lonely
path, you will find others along the way who will reach out
and help you. They will speak your language, and you
will no longer feel alone.
You will be filled with new hope each day until finally your
small flicker will turn into a sunbeam of hope that will light
the way for you from the dark path of sorrow into the healing
light of new-found peace and inner joy! -Clara Hinton
"Yes, things are different now, but they will get better! Hope
is alive and will lead the way!" --Clara Hinton

my soul." --Psalm 54:4
