“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.”
“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is
made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast
in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV
