“For every pain that we must bear, for every burden, every care; there’s a reason. For every grief that bows the head, for every teardrop that is shed; there’s a reason. But if we trust God as we should, it all will work out for our good; He knows the Reason” Author Unknown; found handwritten by Mrs. Teter in her Bible.
