  1. ALL valid questions, Candy. One thing you’ve noticed: people WILL fail you. One thing I know: God loves you and has cherished you personally even before the beginning of time. You are His child for eternity. Loving you today, Susan


  2. All deep questions. Many of us have asked many of them. I do know and believe God loves me. I’m going to have to wait for my turn to go to Heaven to see the big picture of how my personal tragedy fits into something good in His big plan, though.
