This week I, my
family faces certain death! My 102 year old mother is approaching
death. It is like A slow motion train wreck. She will not eat or
take her medicine, her mind is going or is already gone.
experienced the death of loved ones and friends all through my life.
Death, always comes at an chaotic time. We had planned on
going to Singapore and Hong Kong for a once in a lifetime trip. My
beloved mother appears to be reaching the final stages of a long
tumultuous life, so right now my wife and I are trying to do
everything possible to protect her and make her final passage as
pain free as possible.
While my pain
and grief are real I have started to pray and it brings real
comfort. Somewhere in the fog of my thoughts God has communicated to
me that death is simply a return to him of his child. Somehow as
tears swell in my eyes, He communicates that death is something we
all must face and in it we are returned to him as we are all
supposed to be. Millions perhaps even billions of people have died
in the history of the world. They all eventually fade from memory
because God remembers all of us, loves us, and has a earthly and
then eternal purpose for us!
