Goodbye, Parrish

Parrish died today; in a hospice. She was thirty-seven years old. She died of a brain tumor. He death is unfair.

Parrish was grade school classmate of my son; also younger sister to the classmate of my daughter.

The universe is out of joint. Her mother and her father, our adult friends, older, wiser, more prepaed for death, should have died first.

Her youthful death tests faith. If God is listening: Re-do your human mortality schedule; take the parents first, and only later, children. You have been cruel, God. Even capricious. I'm disappointed in You. If you must test our belief and/or faith, choose another way than taking away our children.

Goodbye, Parrish.

I'm sorry to hear this sad news. It is heartbreaking and confusing I know. God is listening and weeping with you. Remember the story of Lazarus and his sisters? Jesus (God in the flesh)wept with them over Lazarus' death, even knowing He had the power to raise him from the dead as He did! God is sovereign. He has all the answers, we do not. But I know that although His sovereignty seems cruel at times to our human hearts and minds, He is FULL OF LOVE...God wastes nothing...even in death...look at His Son..."For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have everlasting life." You are loved and I am praying for you and your friends family during this time of sadness and grief.
