[[I am so deeply saddened.]]

I understand.

I found out a wonderful friend on mine (Vincente) had cancer the other day (lung) and I called him. He barely speaks English so when I catch a phrase I'm relieved. He was talking about his life and the fact that he had been waiting for years for his residency papers (for Canadian citizenship) to come through. Then last week they finally came through, only to find out a week later he's very sick. Then he said something that touched me so deeply I'll never forget it:

"Life is a problem and we have to find the solution."

This pretty well summed up the Course in one sentence.

I got off the phone and cried deeply for two hours. The beautiful thing is, they weren't tears of depression or sadness...they were tears of deep gratitude.

Through my tears I was celebrating the mysticism of life. I felt deeply blessed.

I am grateful for the wisdom in Vincente's heart...and to be quite honest, I wouldn't have such appreciation for him if he hadn't gone through a life time of trials.

"Through trials, Children of God realize that God has been there all along." (my guidance)

Your friend,
Stef
