You Give and You Take Away

Dear God,

Why is death so devastating? We all do it sometime, we all know it is coming eventually, we even have hope in some cases, knowing that when we are absent from our bodies, we are present with you. It is just so gut-wrenchingly awful.

How can you take away Jess's husband when her wedding rings are still SO SHINY AND NEW? I do not see your plan or your reasons yet. The only thing I can ask and figure out is that you will do something positive with all of the pain surrounding this.

I know you have a plan. I know it's not easy. I know we're not going to like it right now...or maybe ever.

If I'm going to be honest, maybe there's a little jealousy there. In a short time, Isaac is going to be WITH YOU. Sure, you're with all of us here, but to actually see you face to face... Because, who wouldn't want to go on a 200 year tour of the world? Who wouldn't want to run into Moses, Abe Lincoln and Herb III on a daily basis? I sure would love it.

God, it was so completely random how you brought them into our lives so suddenly and we became close so quickly. But I am so thankful for the time.
