I'm Sad

Today I feel sad, not for me, but for friends and family members that are so dear to me.

We just returned from a trip to visit relatives. My sister-in-law has dementia and didn't know who we were and her husband is in rehab after a stroke. This aging thing is no fun.

My neighbour and some good friends are battling for their lives against that Cancer monster.

Some of my siblings are struggling with constant pain and debilitating disease.

My Aunt is very sick and frail and could be breathing her last any day.

My Grandson was so very sick yesterday.

I'm reminded of a song..."Everybody want's to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die".
It's the process of getting there that is so difficult.

Again, I cry out to God for all these people and I read Psalm 23. Thank God, our shepherd is always there to comfort and guide.
