In our society happiness is the ultimate goal. On TV everyone is happy, happy, happy. Smiles everywhere. We don't know how to be sad, nor do we realize there is an important role for sadness. It's God's way to help us heal. I won't try to talk you out of being sad. I'll mourn with you. I'll point the way to healing, so you can go heal and move on.
