A LOOK AT LIFE
'WHAT WENT OUT FOR TO SEE?' MATTHEW 11:8
DINNER WITH MY MOM AND DAD WAS NICE that Friday night. But not when Mom reminds us that she doesn't want to live to be 90, because of all of the physical challenges associated with aging. And 90, for her, isn't too many years down the road.
Death isn't a fun dinner topic, but Mom and Dad are facing the loss of some dear friends, as well as other struggles of aging. Talking can make it easier. We comfort one another in the reminder that the spiritual qualities our friends express are forever. We all agree that there's more to those we care about than what dies. Still, there's a sense of loss to deal with. Death isn't easy for most of us to face. In fact, it can be a scary unknown.
