I'm writing today, because I had a sort of epiphany.
As some of you know my husband is battling cancer for which he just receive a major operation last monday.
Now I am not a religious person, by any ammount and most people here know that I am spiritual, but the idea of organized religion scares the hell out
I was raised Catholic, but was never serious about it.
Well, last Sunday, I prayed. For the first time in decades, I prayed to God to help me and my husband through this difficult path in our lives.
Maybe he was listening, maybe he wasn't. The point is I felt BETTER, with a little faith on my side.
As well as to my surprise he's recovering at a rate which doctors have a hard time explaining. He's a doctor himself, who takes wonderful care of
himself, but still, a major operation and 3 days later he was up on his feet and walking around.
For a split second, a spiritual belief which is complete opposite to mine helped me, and helped him.
It was soothing and reassuring for some reason to pray and to think that just for one moment there was a God who loved and watched over all his
children. It was a very sobering experience.
So from this day forward, I will no longer ridicule the religion of others, I will not even disagree. For in the most basic sense, I looked for and
received what ALL religious people are looking for.
A light at the end of the tunnel.
