When someone dies?
When problems arise?
Why are we surprised when we deal with chaos, with evil?
Why are we surprised and taken aback when things go awry?
This is life.
Life is a wonderful thing.
Life is glorious.
But life is also tragic and sad.
Life is mysterious.
There is a reason looking for the silver lining is a cliche -- because it is so true.
In every tragedy , in every problem, in every awful event, good will come out of it if we allow it.
And when we see that good God can remake our reality.
"There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven --
A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance.
A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace."
