God, I don't understand...

I don't understand why good people who serve you faithfully are eatten up with cancer. I don't understand why teenagers are eatten up with cancer.

I know You say in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 (NIV)

But God, I don't get it. I don't see what good there is in babies losing their mom or moms losing their babies.

God help me to understand or at least to have peace. Help me to give comfort to others during this time.

Even though I think you and I are a bit different in our approach to our spirituality, I will still chime in.

I think that we will never know many of the answers until we have passed over ourselves. I am good with that. It doesnt negate that I miss my Daddy. But I do have my own understanding that we will all, in time, find out the big mystery.

The blessings that are ours until then are the compassion and understanding that we can comfort others with. We dont have to understand why someone has passed to be able to comfort the ones left behind. That is our gift.

Deb, Oh, honey I give you a huge hug. I don't know what or who God is, why such things happen on this good planet. All I know is that nothing seems fair. But love, I can feel this, feel love, and then I know there is something beyond me.

And I send you all my love today, Deb.
