A loved one is going through a very tough time. He's watching his wife struggle with a debilitating disease. He's watching their children watch her suffer. I can't imagine the angst. I can't imagine the thoughts going through his head. I wish there was something I could do, something I could say, something that could help.
We of faith cling to it particularly when things go awry and we're prone to offer what semblance of faith we have to those we see suffering. Morsels of intended comfort.
Today, I stand with my cousin Ed, who's wife was re-admitted to the hospital yesterday. I stand with him offering yet more morsels of intended comfort.
It's the purpose of this post and particularly what follows.
May Ed, and particularly his beautiful wife Diane, find what is intended, the peace and comfort of He who suffers with them.
God's love to you both Eddie. With all my heart.
