Behind The Butter

9/11 Never Forget

No one is abandoned by the Lord forever.

Though He brings grief, He also shows compassion

because of the greatness of His unfailing love.

For He does not enjoy hurting people

or causing them sorrow.

Great is His faithfulness.

-Lamentations 3:31-33

    This is my first time commenting on your blog, though I have been a reader for a couple of years now. I just want to thank you for blogging from your heart, posting such timely verses so that we all may be in a humbled and grateful mindset for all that we have on such a day as this. Your sincerity and honesty are what keep me coming back, and I know I share these sentiments with many more out there.

    Thank you.

    Jenna, your willingness to post a bible verse is one if the many things i admire about you. Persevere friend. For skepticrina, i would encourage you to, with an open mind, read John 3:16-21. God created you and loves you, even when you don’t believe. I am praying for you.
