  • Glad to hear she is recovering.

  • Dominic

    She is a remarkably holy and inspirational person. Surely, a future Saint.

  • Right there beside her as He Always is. She is 92 and debilitated by age and disease and supported by Joy and Love. That is a miracle, I am sorry if you cannot see it.

  • Ted

    No way, Jenkins. Consider too all the innocent kids who died awful suffering deaths early in life because of diseases that your “god” created. When you look at the big picture, your sky god looks like a giant a-hole, worse than Hitler.

    yes–

  • God created the entirety of creation and the laws of nature that life is subject to…yes there is suffering and yes there is overwhelming beauty! Do you curse the universe for the suffering that you see or do you accept that it is how it is, even though you don’t understand it all?

    God created both, yes, but if you understand this God as I do, you would see that Love is the essence of this and that YOUR response to suffering should be love, even if you don’t understand why it is there and what God had in mind.

    Five to one odds that she did not have a DNR or “living will” and will be kept on machines for as long as conceivably possible.

  • Ted

    No Jenkins. You are contradicting yourself. You plainly don’t “understand” god at all. You are just deluded. That’s all.
