current interest in the contemplative practice of Lectio Divina. I did not
get the impression that the wife committed suicide, but that she certainly
contemplated it by reasoning in the dark.

because they choose to quit on life. They are selfish as well because they
do not take into consideration who their death might drastically effect.
All I can say is that I will pray for you, Malcolm, that you may find peace
in life with God. Suicide is cowardice at its worst. Surely you are not
