My beloved 83 year old father appears to have pretty aggressive prostate cancer that has metastasized to his bones causing a lot of pain. The doctors have been a little slow dealing with the pain and my father has been hesitant to avail himself of the pain meds but he seems to understand the importance now; hopefully the pain will be under control.
Dad is a devout believer and doesn’t worry about dying but has always worried more about living; as do I. And then my Mom worries about my Dad. I am fortunate that I’ve had my parents into their 80’s with reasonable health and mental acuity. But the warning signs are out; we don’t live forever here on planet Earth. We the children are paying more attention, we don’t have a lot of years left to enjoy our parents.
And even for us, tomorrow is not promised. But God is good to His children and a better place awaits us after our time on earth is ended. Glory That!
