Adam fell that man might be and man is that he might have joy. In the Garden of Eden Adam and Eve were commanded to multiply and replentish the earth that they might have joy in their posterity. A question we often ask ourselves in times of grief, pain, and misery, is what is the purpose of life, and where is the joy? The reason Eve partook of the forbidden fruit was because she reasoned it would be better to experience pain and suffering that they might also know joy. Thus, they were cast out of the Garden and into the mortal world. Have they had joy in us, their posterity? Does God feel joy when he thinks of his children? I was questioning that last night and an impression that came to mind was that joy is found in fulfilling the measure of our own individual, unique creation. If that includes enduring pain and suffering, and you fulfill it well, you will have joy in it eventually. My personal belief is that all children who die too soon, will continue their mortal growth during the millennium, and that could happen sooner than we think, but I don't think other religions believe as we do concerning that millennium, 1000 years of peace, 1000 years of a perfect world government here on earth, governed by Jesus Christ himself. Perfect world of fairness in business, no war, no hate, only love and joy. The promise of joy doesn't just refer to this life only, but the eternities. Let us try harder to hang on to our principles and beliefs here on earth, and fill the measure of our creation, so we can have joy, and also increase the joy of God, and give him more joy in his posterity.

Your grief is deep and it is great. No loss compares to the loss of a child. There are no words of consolation to comfort or make it go away. The words I have shared come from scripture and thoughts dear to my heart. I wish you rays of sunshine in your dark space today Dena. love....rayww
