My friend died on Sunday. The cancer moved so fast. She only found out in November.
Her death brings out the human in me. I'm angry that she's gone. Tears come at awkward times. I want to know why. Why her? Why now? Her children need their mother. Her husband needs his wife. Her mother needs her daughter. She did everything right. She ate clean and exercised. She served the Lord diligently with her time and talents. She was young and healthy.
I believe there is a reason, though it is not mine to know. I believe, no I KNOW, that she is in the arms of her Redeemer. She will not suffer anymore. And I will see her again.
I will pray for her family, especially the children. Their sorrow is unimaginable. I will hold my loved ones a little closer and a little tighter. Tomorrow is promised to no one.
Death has been swallowed up in victory! I Cor 15:54
