We find it hard explaining suffering unsolicited unwarranted good things happening to bad people bad things happening to good people but God is infinite unfathomable compassionate & by humble estimates peace could be here tomorrow if each reached their potential today the only real question is how can we allow for each other a spring? rain is God’s happy & sad tears sustaining lightning is God’s doubt flashing in the mirror every time we don’t assemble potential then thunder is God moving furniture to understand from a newer perspective
