Just a bit of my story.
My wife, although still with us has fought ovarian cancer for 20 years. There has been more than once in her 3 occurrences of cancer that we thought we were going to lose her.
My Oldest daughter has suffered through 2 ectopic pregnancies and 4 other miscarriages in the last several years.
Through all of this we lost my father in law (who I loved dearly) to the terrible disease Alzheimer's.
We had moved in with my in laws to care for my father in law and keep him at home. We succeeded and allowed him the dignity of dying at home with those who loved him.
My grandmother then Lived with us and at the age of 97 she died. We could not keep her at home because she had fallen and had suffered a broken a hip, but we were with her when she died, and I was glad to have given her some comfort at the time.
But with all of that being said, I know that our experiences are common to all of mankind around the world. My family certainly does not have a corner on suffering. We are all in the same predicament
But there is a source of great comfort to be found and I don't know what I would have done without it.
It is God's word the Bible.
