SHORT THOUGHTS: There are so many things in this world that just don't make sense. There are so many things that happen that there are just no good answers for.
One day, on the other side of eternity, it will not be like that. All the pieces of the big puzzle will be in place and we will see the whole picture...the finished product and understand it all. All tears will be wiped away, all pain healed, all wrongs will be made right and death will be no more.
But for now...for all the things we just don't understand, with all the pain and hurt we endure in this life...we must put trust and faith in the One who knows us the best and loves us the most, knowing and believing that HE is working for our good. Even when we can't see it, it is still true. We see a few pieces of the puzzle while God sees the big finished beautiful picture.

1 Corinthians 13:12 (NIV)
For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
Revelation 21:3-4 (NIV)
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
