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.
Since that is not going to happen, my birthday wish is that none of you reading this, who are not going through this now,
WILL NEVER HAVE TO!
