A man confessed, "Years ago, a great sorrow almost wrecked my life. I almost lost my faith. Bitterly I cried, 'I can't take it. I cannot go on.' But it passed away. I did take it and I did go on. Now I have learned to accept what each day brings, knowing I can bear it for a day." With fortitude and courage, born of our faith in God, we can take whatever life brings. We can turn life's sorrows into a song.
