He Gives and Takes Away

[a friend of mine is grieving the loss of someone dear. she reminded us that He gives and takes away. this got me to thinking ...]

He gives and takes away
In our grief 
We only see the taking
Because, in that eternal moment of grief
The pain of losing
Far Exceeds the joy of receiving

interesting. really accentuates the wisdom of savoring each moment fully - we tend to lose that lamenting the past and worrying about the future.
