44 and 23I woke up and it's raining. Heaven must be mourning. The past few days reminded me that time given to us is limited but our ability to be kind, be generous, and be prayerful is not. Today, we commemorate the National Day of Mourning for the 44 fallen soldiers who gave their lives in honor of our country. May God grant them eternal rest.
Heartbreaking as it is, the sorrow we are feeling can't compare to the pain the bereaved families are going through. Even our sincerest condolences and sympathies won't be able to suppress that. The best we can do is offer them our prayers - that they get through this very vicious time of grief in one piece and stronger in faith. I offer them this song. God is always with them.
On the other hand, the story of our lives can be compared to a book that has so many chapters in it. And just because we've read one bad paragraph doesn't mean it's the end of the book. The rain this morning could also mean a blessing. Because today, we also celebrate life. And I am so thankful to have found a friend that's thoughtful and sweet like Jamie. And like the pouring rain, may God shower you with blessings and grant you your heart's desires. And I wish you good health, happiness and lots of love to come your way. Happy happy birthday Jam! God gave you this gift of life, live it well. :)
Here's a song. It doesn't really fit you. But it's awesome, it's one of my favorites, and you've just turned 23. Haha. :)
