Should we not see that lines of laughter about the eyes are just as much marksOswald Sanders
of faith as are the lines of care and seriousness? Is laughter pagan? We have
already allowed too much that is good to be lost to the church and cast many
pearls before swine. A church is in a bad way when it banishes laughter from
the sanctuary and leaves it to the cabaret, the nightclub, and the toastmasters.”
We are to grieve bad things that happen to us.
We are to grieve good things that don’t happen to us.
We are to grieve over our sins.
We are to grieve over suffering in the world.
We are to grieve over friends & family that don’t know Jesus.
As children we are taught how to acquire things, not what to do when we lose them.”John James (Grief Recovery Handbook)
