Quotes on Troubles-

“Often the same thing that makes one person bitter makes another better.” J.C. Ryle

“God often digs the wells of joy with the spades of affliction.” Isaac Watts

“To scale great heights, we must come out of the lowermost depths. The way to heaven all too often leads through hell.” Herman Melville

Thanks for posting those quotes. I really needed to hear them. They put a specific situation into better perspective for me, and I was able to pass them along to one of my kids' moms who is having a horrible time of life right now. God works in wondrous ways...:o)
