The World woke up to the shocking News on August 13th 2014. The King of Comedy-Robin Williams-
In 1835 a man visited a doctor in Florence, Italy. He was filled with anxiety and exhausted from lack of sleep. He couldn't eat, and he avoided his friends. The doctor examined him and found that he was in prime physical condition. Concluding that his patient needed to have a good time, the physician told him about a circus in town and its star performer, a clown named Grimaldi. Night after night he had the people rolling in the aisles. "You must go and see him," the doctor advised. "Grimaldi is the world's funniest clown. He'll make you laugh and cure your sadness." "No," replied the despairing man, "he can't help me. you see, I am Grimaldi!" Source Unknown.

25 For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth.
:1 I know that my Redeemer lives,
and ever prays for me;
I know eternal life He gives,
from sin and sorrow free.

Experience Job’s Faith
26 And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God,
Death all about him, but he knew he would see his God. Even though his children have died, he was on the verge of death – still he had a sure hope in a world of uncertainty

His saving grace is nigh;
I know that He will come again
to take me home on high.

On June 17, 2017 the U.S. Navy destroyer USS Fitzgerald collided with a Philippine-flagged container ship 56 miles off the coast of Japan. But one of the seven sailors who died aboard the USS Fitzgerald saved more than a dozen of his fellow shipmates before he ultimately lost his own life.
When the Fitzgerald collided with the merchant ship, 37-year-old Fire Controlman 1st Class Gary Leo Rehm Jr., "leapt into action." The Fitzgerald was struck below the waterline, and Rehm Jr.'s family was told by the Navy that he went under and saved some of his crewmates, possibly even 20 of them.
But here's an interesting part of this story. People who knew Rehm have said the same thing: Gary was just acting according to the character he had spent years shaping. A close friend said, "[The heroic rescue] was Gary to a T. He never thought about himself."
Rehm's uncle said, "He called [the sailors on the ship] his kids. He said, 'If my kids die, I'm going to die. He was always ready to help anybody who needed it. He was just that kind of guy.'"
:4 I know that over yonder stands
a place prepared for me;
A home, a house not made with hands,
most wonderful to see.
Chorus
I know, I know that my Redeemer lives,
I know, I know eternal life He gives;
I know, I know that my Redeemer lives
