Oooh I LOVE this quote WOW!
So many misunderstand suffering and blame the sufferer for some odd reason.

Thankyou Esther that is one very powerful quote!

If it's ok with you Esther, I'd like to use that sometime also. Very thought provoking quote. I always say that I feel sorry for atheists...what do they do with their pain if they can't offer it up?

Of course Micki. I'm glad you liked it. I never thought of atheists like that. I wonder...
