Lately I’ve been hearing of hospitalizations and health problems of elderly parents. Just today a friend’s mother passed away. Another friend’s mother is in a coma.
When I hear such news, I get tired. Tired of the burdens of life, tired of the difficulties. And I have not even experienced even half of what some others go through, particularly those in other countries with much less than what I have. Even with what is considered a privileged life, it is apparent that this world offers little hope.
For me to live is Christ, to die is gain…indeed it is gain!
