Walls crumble, cities fall, love is lost, money runs out, families leave, friends betray.
But I stand here, Happy In Spite Of, because I know that while the things of this world will crumble and fall, and the things of this world will all come to an end, I am not of this world. I am a new creation, a child of the Living God. What I lose here on earth was never mine to have; everything here belongs to my Lord. What He sees fit for me to have, I will have, and what He sees fit to take away, I will lose. Whatever trials I go through are lessons to teach me and strengthen me. This world will pass away, but I will not. I belong to the Risen Lord, the Giver of Life. He will provide for me, and when this life is over, He will draw me to Him and I will live forever.
That's all for now, I suspect more is to come.
