"The Lord Gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord" (Job 1:21). Sometimes, God only lends the world His children only for a little while. No parent plans to bury his or her child but when God sends His Angels to bring His child home; much sooner than we planned, we'll brave the grief that comes and try to understand.
And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying. Neither shall there be anymore pain. For the former things are passed away. Revelation: 21:4
