Life Goes On

Posted on February 21, 2011 at 7:05pm 3 Comments

On January 19th, 2011 I lost my sister in a very sudden death.  It was completely unexpected.  I find that I still have so much trouble sleeping at night.  Any moments not spent working I think about the horrible things she must have endured right before she died.  I try to spend as much time with my parents as I can because they are dying inside.  I have siblings that are also grieving so very much.  I find that I don't talk to them as much because I know they have enough to deal with.  I look… Continue

WHEN we lose a loved one in death, we may become overwhelmed by grief. The Bible tells us that Jesus wept when his dear friend Lazarus died. Yet, just minutes later Jesus performed an astounding miracle—he raised Lazarus back to life! (John 11:32-44) In doing so, he gave all mankind solid grounds for faith in the amazing promise he had made earlier in his ministry when he said: “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus’] voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29) May the precious hope of a resurrection to life on a paradise earth comfort all who have lost loved ones in death.—Acts 24:15.

Well, my dad had lived with us until I was 16 then he had a stroke which reduced him to an infant like state. His condition was all new for me and my siblings I had known nothing about the illness except that it can be alcohol induced. So now I should tell that as far back as I can remember my father was an alcoholic. He would drink and become this very mean person who had myself and all of my siblings scared to death. When he wasn't drunk though he was this sweet gentle man whom which I knew from a distance. But the times he were so mean and abusive to us weighed heavily on our minds even then so we stayed away. Now here he is stuck in this nursing home for the rest of his life and I maybe came to see him 4 times. When I was 31, 15 years later my dad died I never knew it would hurt me so bad but it did I was crushed. Not only that but I felt guilty for not going to see him more often.


Until I realized two things 1st my not going to visit wasn't all of my fault part of it was his because he failed to establish a good relationship with his children that is what's part of what kept me away. And secondly I take great comfort in the possibility of seeing him again as the Bible mentions he'll more then likely be resurrected to a paradise earth and if I do all that I can to be there we can have until time indefinite to reestablish that father and son relationship I so crave.
