Prayers needed!

Thursday, December 03, 2009

My 46 yr old brother died early Tuesday morning. He hadn't been feeling well and I guess the autopsy showed he had an infection and internal bleed ing. He had a Dr, appointment scheduled for later that day. We are having a memorial service for him on Saturday which ironically would have been his 28th wedding anniversary. His wife had a stroke 12 yrs ago and is in a wheel chair. At least their kids are older, but they are going to have to put their mother in a nursing home and sell their parents home. Way more than they should have to handle at this point in their lives.

I lost my Father and my other brother just 2 years ago(6 monthes apart) and now this. Death is so hard to understand. Why would God need to take both of my brothers at such young ages? Everyone keeps telling me that God only gives you what he thinks you can handle but this seems like so much more. It is so overwelming. My mother shouldn't have had to bury both of her sons.

So if you could please pray for my family.

    I'm so sorry for your loss and I give my condolenses to you and your family..God is definitely in control and yes he only gives you what you can handle..There are a lot of things that we experience in life and never know the answer or reason to them because it's just life and maybe it's not meant for us to know why--we may not be able to handle the truth...But you are definitely in my prayers..Again, sorry for your loss :(

    SCHICK66,

    I am sorry for your loss. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I agree that it is hard to understand why God thinks we can handle more than we do. I've often had that thought myself when I am feeling overwhelmed. But please hang in there. Unfortunately, God doesn't always reveal His reasons for things either. I think that is the part that makes it harder for us.

    Wishing you God's peace and blessings, and praying that you all get through this difficult time.
