This world is becoming a sad place.
A place growing more and more without God.
People turn away from God and don't want to know Him.
Perhaps they blame him for the hurts in their life?
He gives us all free choices. This includes people who willingly mistreat us.
When life goes wrong, we can turn to God, or away from Him.
Its not a difficult choice for me.
In Him, and often Him alone, I find comfort.
The parents of the Newtown massacre, face a bleak Christmas this year.
And there are probably many other people who have also experieced traumas at this time.
For myself, I will keep a candle burning in remembrance of all those hurting.
I especially think of my grandson Matteo who I never got to know.
He died on Christmas Day aged 10days old in 1998.
Its not good to dwell on the negative, but it is good to remember.
Remembering hopefully brings empathy and a greater service to others.
Yes it turns bitter into better, it turns our mourning into dancing.
They are all so beautiful....
"He will wipe away every tear
from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be
mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have

An author since 2012 and retired Specialist Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our two little dogs. Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11.
