I couldn't resist? Is that an excuse?
But it is true. Life goes on. It's not fair that I can't be with my fiancé while we're engaged, but it's also not fair that people break up or people have to wait to get married. For all of us, life goes on. And God's got it all figured out for all of us. "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28)
So here I am back at school, trying to finish up my degree, working again, living with roommates, carrying a sack lunch, while Scott goes back to work, back to looking for a job, a flat, a computer...
But I'm eating strawberries. I've got leftover lasagna in the fridge. I got paid today. I'm wearing a diamond ring. Life isn't so bad.
Do our losses really outweigh the goods? Sometimes we begin to think so.
