Sad thing is, its usually in the form of, "Ha ha ha ha!!!! You must be joking! Suck it up loser!"
What a kind and benevolent spirit....
Gazrok, I know it may seem that your prayer are being answered that way. However, God answers prayer in three ways, yes, no and wait. God is not a
vending machine who dispenses all that we ask of Him.
AngelWings, I pray for the recover of your mom. Nine years ago this past Easter, my dad had a massive heart attack. The doctors told us that if he
lived another year, it would be a miracle. We prayed that if it be God’s will that he could remain with us. My mom was so very dependant on him
and they loved each other so much. But we also wanted a quality life for him rather than just quantity of life.
Fast forward to this past summer when after getting over treatment for prostrate cancer, he discovered that he had a tumor on his lung. I had to go
home in June to help out my mom (she never learned to drive) and I am grateful to God that I was allowed that visit. It had been seven years since I
had seen my parents due to work, financial problems, and geographical distance. My dad got better, and I had a wonder visit with both.
Then in November, we found out that my mom had inoperable pancreatic cancer. She was placed in a hospice room in a nursing home. My dad also had
diabeties and he was hospitalized on Christmas day. A week later, he was moved to the same nursing home.
I went back to Florida a few days after New Years and stayed for two months. My parents celebrated their 48th wedding aniversary on January 10. They
both went downhill after that. As my mom’s condition deteriorated, my dad struggled with the duality of congestive heart failure and diabeties.
Too much fluid could bring on CHF, but too little fluid could cause a clot.
My mom passed peacefully in her sleep on February 7, 2006. My dad held her hand and said “Prasie the Lord.” Thirteen days later, my dad passed a
massive clot and died peacefully in his sleep. God has been good to us. I miss my parents, but I am comforted by the fact that I KNOW I’ll see
them again. I feel that it will be soon. This man was not my biological father, but he was and will always be my daddy.
