Definition of today...

Disconsolate (adjective):Cheerless, Dejected, Downcast.

THAT is how I was feeling described me perfectly.

But, then tonight, at church...the hymn Come, Ye Disconsolate was requested...and it just sang to my heart.
I share it with you tonight...for all those feeling "out of sorts" in whatever way...I hope you realize who brings the Answer to all.

Come, you Disconsolate. whatever you languish-come to the Mercyseat, fervently kneel, Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish: Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Joy of the desolate, Light of the straying, Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure! Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying, "Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot cure."

Here see the Bread of Life, see waters flowing Forth from the throne of God, pure from above, come to the feast of love, come ever knowing Earth has no sorrow that heaven can remove.

"Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal."...Papa mentioned those words again after the hymn was over...he said them with a sense of wonder in his voice...and truly it IS amazing! Such a big statement...especially when i think of all the sadness, confusion, pain that is in this world....and yet, our God IS that big....and yet, not too big not to care for the tiniest worry on our hearts!
