Life…. the greatest journey you will ever be on

by Katy Heinecke
Courier Staff Writer

We all have to ask ourselves why life is so fragile sometimes and we question our faith during those times. God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain. But He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way. Maybe you’ve heard this before and maybe you haven’t, but if you read it again and think about it, it is very true. We all take life for granted until we get into a tough situation and then wonder what we have done to deserve this treatment.
