  1. Very true. Sundays are so difficult. A truth during Bible Study, a hymn, an innocent statement during the sermon, plus all of the unanswered questions to God, “Why didn’t you protect him?” “You promised to always be with him, where were you?”, etc. I go to church hoping to be able to pray today, any day but just not knowing what state I will be in during or after. Yes, I have had to leave early to avoid disturbing others. The pain never ends.
