weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning Psalm 30:5b. keep the family &her love 1′s n our prayers R.I.P Whitney Houston
after my pastor’s death i learned that sum people endure so much pain on earth & us wishing they remain on earth longer is only hurting them more. so God takes them to heal the agony. Their journey is now complete & as u mourn, crying out the words “I will always love you – Whitney Houston” don’t 4get to smile & say these words “Job well done.”
