    Dear David, There is not a sparrow that falls to the ground without our Father in heaven; and He knows the way that we take. I find it a strength in times of difficulty, to know that "we are not our own;" and that our lives are His, and on loan to us as His servants, for His use. God has made it clear, that all that we suffer wrongfully, He will remember and judge when the fullness of time comes.
