It

A few months ago, I came across this post from a friend of a friend. She writes about cancer and how it has come into her life six different times. Not once was it a personal diagnosis. Six times cancer was the diagnosis for those she loves and cares for. 

It's truly unbelievable to read her story about how 'it' has impacted her life.

I feel like 'it' is everywhere. My friend who had a double mastectomy last year. My friend who lost her husband earlier this year. An aunt and uncle who are both currently battling cancer.

I don't understand 'it.'

I don't like 'it.'

And I am exceedingly grateful for the promise of Revelation 21:4: "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Oh what a day that will be.

We just lost another relative to "it" last week. I wish I understood "it" too. :(
