I watched a movie tonight that made me cry. And I didn't try to stop the tears. It was wonderful.

To God be all glory.

It was a movie about death,

a subject about which I have been thinking

for no morbid reason.

But Christians have been insisting

that life will work out fine

that more than likely I will be married

and I keep remembering history and reality:

there is suffering

and loss;

people die;

there is war.

An engagement may be broken before marriage happens

or some never meet the right one.

Which is more tragic?

Is it ok?

Unfortunately I can't recommend the movie; it has some horrible content. It more or less wielded the poetry of John Dunn, which if you're interested, I can recommend you read (though I can't vouch for its validity). And I can recommend that when you want to cry, don't stifle it. Sometimes the pain means you're alive.

To God be all glory,
