It can be difficult to understand why things happen as they do in life, but if we can remember that each breath in this life is but a whisper of time, compared to eternity, then perhaps we can see beyond the stained glass tears, renewing our faith in the God who sees and holds time in His breath. His time and breath will heal your grief. Hold on to Him.
