As a sequel to my last blog…. what can we do?



While life is not fair, is there a reason these horrible things happen?


Some people use this truth to ‘prove’ God isn’t real – how could a supreme being allow bad things to happen? Isn’t God in control? Doesn’t God care?

Others use it as a sign that God does exist – ‘God only gives us the challenges we can handle’, ‘All things happen for a reason’…..

But most of us, whether we believe or not are just confused.

It’s my birthday today. A lot has happened to me in the last year, most of it bad. In the last year I have easily aged many years over. I have a lot more white hair, I’ve lost a lot of weight (ok, maybe I’m good with that part), my physical and emotional health has deteriorated significantly, and my heart, quite literally aches.

Seriously, a dull ache that doesn’t go away.




My first choice for a birthday wish would be to hold my eldest son in my arms.

  1. Happy Birthday, Kathleen 🎉🎈 My wish is the same for you. I really wish you could have exactly that too. This is extremely difficult to go through and very hard to understand. I truly believe there are are reasons for everything and God will somehow make this up for what you guys have been put through. No one ever gets away with doing dishonest things or working against others to hurt them just to serve their own selfish purposes. Their time will come for the damage they have done to others. No one ever gets away with doing things like that to others. There’s no such thing. You and Jace will come out of this stronger than ever. Truth never changes or goes away. They all will eventually be exposed for the idiots and evil people they truly are for doing this to others.


  2. I heard you crying the first day you found out about this, and I could tell it would forever change not only Jace life, but everyone in his family as well. I think you’re doing a great job of everything you can to minimize that! I think that your heart will be okay, you’re strong and it will fine when your boy comes home!
