Bad days are one thing-everyone has them now and then. But what about the darker clouds that settle over a life for weeks or even months at a time? What about separation and divorce, prolonged illness and hospitalization? What about the loss of a friend or a parent, the absense of a child or a spouse? For a friend or family member who just isn't coping no matter what you say, the sturdy simplicity of this little volume offers something most well-meaning sympathy cards forget: a gentle insistence that there is still a God who watches over all, and stubborn faith that the worst trials of life's 'difficult hours' will one day be overshadowed by his comfort and peace.
