It had done me good to be parched by the heat
and somewhat drenched by the rains of life
H. W. Longfellow
If we had never had been hurt
We would never understand each others pain
If I had never won
We would never understand each others joy
If we had never lost our way
We could never help each other find the way back
Life above all else
so learn your lessons well
and that's poetiquejustis
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
God is our merciful Father
and the source of all comfort.
He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
2 Corinthians 1:3-5
