The times in our lives that we remember most are either filled with joy or filled with tragedy. Both take deep reflection. Both remain tied to our souls. Both take a chunk out of our hearts. It is up to us and our relationship with self and with God to put each in its perspective place. We can turn all experiences into learning lessons, treasured memories, or chose to forget them altogether. God created us in his image. That means he feels as we do.
Psalm 34:18 The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Psalms 63:5-7 My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night; for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy
