The faithfulness of God is demonstrated to us in the way that we are discovered and rescued in our moments of intense grief and pain. For me, it is in hands that are stretched across an Atlantic ocean. The burden is lifted ever so slightly and made endurable by the companions that bear us up. For such I never cease to thank and praise the Father of Light, in whom there is no shadow of turning. Although I know in my head that God is always there, it sure helps to have the comfort of a human ear that hears, and a human heart that responds.
