We Need One Another!

Sometimes less is more... so today I give you a great quote:

"Nothing can make up for the absence of someone whom we love, and it would be wrong to try to find a substitute.
It is nonsense to say that God fills the gap; He does not fill it, but on the contrary, He keeps it empty and so helps us to keep alive our former communion with each other, even at the cost of pain."
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Sometimes the pain of communion is greater than the emptiness caused by absence. Difficult choice! Time does tend to resolve such issues or bring the courage to try the rejected situation again. Or the painful association becomes irrelevant after a while.
