When the war is over

All around is chaos and madness

Can’t help feeling nothing more than sadness

Only choice… to face it the best I can.

There are some things in this life that I will never understand. As long I wear this frail coating of flesh and blood, as long as the fragility of my own humanity covers me… I will never understand.

This morning I got news that some good friends of ours lost their little girl. There had been complications and surgery whilst still in the womb was scheduled for this morning. But it wasn’t to be and she came in the night, far too early, and only graced us with her presence for an hour before being gently carried to the Father’s side…. in the arms of an angel.

To me, this is the definition of unfair.

Is it fair for me to have cancer?

Maybe.

Depends who you speak to.

I’m 34, an adult… and my hands are dirty.

But not this little one. She was innocent. As innocent as it gets. I can’t even begin to imagine the pain that is enveloping our friends right now. And try as I might, there’s nothing I can do to ease it for them. One day I’m sure I will be able to comprehend all of this but that day is not today.

How long, O Lord, how long?

Son of David….. have mercy.

  1. Certainly something to think about. So sad and unfair. My thoughts and prayers are with this family today. Still praying for you too Kristian 🙂

  2. Maranatha

  3. My daughter had a stillborn at 34 weeks. Austin. I got to know him alive in my daughter’s womb and was very priveledged to hold him in our arms when he was born, he was beautiful, but still. Such torn emotions in a split second.
    However, I have so many things to thank God for…..another story, another day.
