Death, Death, and more Death

I've had my share this year of losses.
First my cat, then the sudden death my older brother 
and then my friend Cathy. 
Another friend lost his wife a month ago
and then just recently his grown daughter.
Yet another friend and Elder in my congregation
lost his mother to death recently.
Now another friend had to make the painful decission to 
take her husband off of life support.
And then Yesterday my girl friend, Johnnie, who 
I have know since I was 9 years old 
just lost her father.
Each loss is different and each one heart wreching.
Several years ago Johnnie's dad and my hubby, Chip
were in the hospital at the same time.
Chip to reattach his bicep muscle and 
her dad for quadruple bypass surgery.
 We helped each other then.
I hope I will be able to comfort her now.
Needless to say...
I needed to make alot of sympathy cards. 
Didn't have enough creative energy to 
make them all different. So I made them all the same.
Half of them are gone already.

The beautiful photo was taken my my niece Kelly.

Having to deal with the pain of death 
is not the way God intended things to be.
Thankfully under Christs Rule
1 Corinthians 15:26  will be fulfilled where it says..
"As the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing."
