And so, if you want to sing a song about suffering, you go back about forty years. Because our is see do the limbs of our situation so the way we see, God is a reflection of our point of view.
When things are going good, we see them in the whole valley, but would things go bad? You feel safe in the course of black Emily. Sooner or later, if you live long enough, you Both extremes.
