When I  got up this morning to enjoy the Labor day holiday I thought  of those  loved ones who have gone to be with the Lord.  With that in mind let me share 2 eternal truths with you.   1) when we hurt  ‘God  hurts.   God  not only  knows our pain -He feels  our  pain. 2) The prophet  Isaiah  wrote  ” For the  Lord comforts  His people  and  will  have  compassion  on His afflicted  ones ”  God  loves you and will  never  forsake you.  These truths  brought comfort to me  and I hope to you  as well.
