SUFFERING


"The cavity which suffering carves into our souls will one day be the receptacle of joy."

Becky...I am sorry. I wish I could carry some of this pain and sorrow for you. Remember that Christ knows exactly what you are feeling, and He loves you immeasurably.

Great quote. It seems that you'll have room for a LOT of joy when all is said and done...
In the mean time, hang in there. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Loved this quote...I remember hearing it on Saturday thinking about those suffering. What a comfort~
Hope today is a good one for you!

Becky, If I could trade places with you I would, know that you are loved by so many.

Thoughts and prayers are always with you.

Wow, that is powerful! I hope that today you feel a little bit better.

I wish I could do something to make the aches and pains of this trail easier.

((hugs))

I love that picture of Christ. I think it is in the Garden of Gethsemane. Hope you start feeling better. We missed you last night. Rich's Eagle poem was awesome (it's one he has used for all the Eagles in the family). Young Roger chose your Dad as one of his scout mentors and gave him a pin. He didn't know about it, so that was great. Nice evening, and the Whitcombs did a great job playing piano, trumpet, and singing America the Beautiful! Love you. Aunt Shirley

Oh, Becky. I love this quotation but know that it is hard to always to be able to look forward to when that joy will replace the suffering. Your strength is certainly an example to me.

Just as there is opposition in all things, I know your weepy mornings will give way to joyous ones. And until then, Ben and Jerry's never hurts:)

You will have SO much room for joy! Lucky you. (And all these things will be for your good)

Wow...you have been through so much. I am glad that Ben & Jerry were there to help you out. I'm glad you and Ben are both home from the hospital. I am glad that you somehow manage to smile through it all. I'm grateful for your example. And thank you for this quote...I needed it today.
