A co-worker’s sister in law lost her battle with cancer yesterday morning. She had two and a half year old triplets. They tried for years to get pregnant. Shortly after they had the children, she fought and won a battle with cancer. Then it returned. With a vengeance. And despite her tenacity at the fight, she lost the earthly battle. And these three beautiful children are without their mother. I have to tell you, I can not comprehend it. My mind absolutely can not wrap itself around this loss. I cried over my children last night sleeping peacefully in their beds when I got the email. I prayed for the family. Then with great gratitude, I prayed for my family. We serve an amazing and awesome God. But there are days, and I know He understands that we in our human minds “see through a glass darkly,” that I can’t help but do anything but ask, “Why?” Please pray for this family today if you have time. Going through an unimaginable loss. And then thank God for yours.
