Yes cancer sux

Gotta tell ya, one of the saddest sights I have ever seen, is seeing an 8year old boy watching his father being buried.

I'm pretty much over funerals! They have been difficult even knowing that both men who died are now with God... and in a waay better place... I suppose I'm just a wee bit selfish and want them to still be here.

The good thing about these funerals for me, is the realisation of how dependent we are on God... its so easy to believe that I'm invincible and not realise that every breath is a gift from God... As john piper once said ... (paraphrased)... We shouldn't ask "why?", when people die, but "why not me? Why am I still alive?"
