The sting of death is something that you can never really be prepared for, especially after the diagnosis of cancer. It always amazes me how a body ravaged with this horrible disease can hold on to breath until the heart decides it is time to stop beating. We are thankful to see the suffering end, the ravaged body is now peaceful but the finality of saying good bye is never easy.
It makes us stop and be quiet and perhaps have a renewed thankfulness for the gift of life that was given us today.
I have a faith that allows me to know that life after death is something I can embrace and look foward to. Death is not an end itself but instead it is a new beginning in a place where sickness no longer lives and tears are no more.
When that phone rings with a new diagnosis or test result will you be able to have that peace that passeth all understanding? It comes from one source only and that is from my Heavenly Father. He knows all, He loves me more than anyone I know and only wants the best for my family and my health. I trust completely in His care and His love. May His peace be yours and may this video below be a tribute to those I have said good bye to this week.
