I asked these two women why they were so happy. They replied studying the word of God and knowing that he is a God of love and compassion. He knows what we are going through and all the tribulations of the world. He does not cause the suffering or create it. Faith sustained these lovely sixty plus year old women. They did not care about all the trivial b.s. out there, but were concerned with my happiness and seeing that I understood questions I had about God.

In retrospect, people with relationships with God are more happy, and seem to prosper. They are not bogged by the mundane and persevere.  Hope. Such a small word but filled with possibilities. These lovely women invited me to worship on Sunday at 12:30. Guess where I will be?:)
