    This is really touching and I’m so sorry for the path he must walk on. It sounds like there is hope considering it’s not aggressive… So many things happen on this earth that tests our faith. May we always grow stronger through them.

    Shirley, it’s so hard to understand God’s ways. I am truly sorry for what your friend is going through, and for all you are walking through in the middle of this hard season. You’re right . . . God CAN handle our anger, and we must remember that, even when we don’t understand and we are hurt by what He allows, we will get through it better when we turn to Him. I’m saying a prayer for you today.
