     "Weeping may last for the night, but joy comes with the morning. And when it comes, it comes with a song, not a cheap or silly song, but a deep and weighty song. It doesn't gloss over the tragedy or the pain or the loss. When the sails of joy go up, the heartaches of life, which once threatened to capsize the boat, become ballast deep in the belly of the ship to make the keel cut deep through the waves and guide the ship through rougher seas ahead.
Great songs are born out of great suffering."

      I saw this posted on a friends' face book page last night and it brought me to tears.  I ask today that our friends and family would lift up the families who are grieving the loss of their precious children to Cancer and for those who are still fighting.   It's a hard song to listen to so my friends only listen if you are ready.
