Comfort For Those Grieving Alone

My mother’s hands were cold and still. She lay with her eyes closed, her only movement coming from the effort of breathing. I had been by her side all night, listening to the rhythm of her breath, shaking with the shock that my mother was truly dying from the cancer we prayed God would heal.

Hearing God’s Voice

The kids and I were headed to a friend’s house to spend a few hours playing together. On the way, I decided to stop by Burger King and get all of us a treat — chocolate milk shakes, yummy!
