- One of my best friends lost her mother a couple of months ago.
- A fellow Dominican Republic mission teammate lost her fight with cancer last month.
- 3 work friends are fighting serious health battles, one of which, a vibrant, sweet man in his thirties, was moved to hospice yesterday.
- Many of my girlfriends in my Bible study group have lots of "junk" going on in their lives - illness, family stuff, work stuff.
My heart is heavy this morning thinking and praying about my friends and their loved ones who are suffering right along with them. I know that God has a plan and that he works all things for good, but I don't have to like the process.But, in the next moment, I realize all the ways in which He has blessed me -- family, friends, work, faith, shelter, food, health. Who am I to question or pout about His plans? Who am I? One of His children living in this fallen world. He understands.
