“If’n you give God the credit when somebody don’t die, you go’n blame Him when they do die? Call it His will?
Ever noticed we git well all the time and don’t die but once’t? Thet has to mean God always wants us to live if’n we can. Hit ain’t never His will for us to die – cept in the big sense. In the sense He was smart enough not to make life eternal on this here earth.”
