There are NO words to comfort this couple. WHY WHY WHY.....a question with no answer. Is it any wonder that they are enraged with the Almighty? The "irrational" part of me thinks there should be a divine law that if you have lost one child, you won't lose another, let alone their only surviving child. But the "rational" part of me thinks the same thing. Actually, how can rationale enter into it at all!
In my humanness, the shock of Jeff's death has baffled me, angered me, scared me.
I don't believe this is God's will. That's a horrible thing to blame God for. Yet, if God were sitting across from me right now, I'd ask Him/Her to make sense out of the senseless, to breathe His/Her healing spirit into Jeff's lungs and bring him back...."just like you did with Lazarus, Lord."
This couple will never recover from this. After all, how many times can a parent's heart break? It never fully mends from the first tragedy.....only to be thrown right back into the spinning wheel of grief!
