The Pharmacy Chick

Flying the coup in retail

Lost a friend today.

It was a life worth living for my friend.  He was an amazing fellow. He loved his wife and his family, but most of all he loved the Lord.  My faith is but a drop in the bucket compared to the faith he lived out in his life.  Melanoma cut his life woefully short, a battle fought hard but lost.  Today he said goodbye to the temporal and said hello to the eternal.  Goodbye my friend,  you have lots of people who will care for what you have left behind but we know that someday we will all be reunited in Joy.

If you say a prayer, pray for his wife and daughters.  They have lost much.

And to you my friend, we rejoice you are with Jesus as we speak.

I’m praying for both you and them.

I agree with Frankie.

Prayer for your friend’s family and you, as well.

I have a deeply personal theory (as a Christian) that meshes well with my medical observation that nice folks get sick and die, and nasty old SOB’s make it to 88.

I really think that going to heaven is a GREAT thing, and that those who love and serve the Lord well get to go to the “head of the line” and enjoy paradise before they have to suffer or be tested any more on this side. Many times their faith is a learning tool and inspiration for non-believers. Some folks can serve God and others in mere hours on earth, and be protected from horrid things that they would have to face if they spent more time “here”.

On the other hand, a merciful God seems to give people who don’t know and serve Him extra chances, more days here to learn and change before they have to face the Lord and consequences of the life they chose.

This is nothing more than my thoughts, but it seems to be consistent with the Word, and helps a little to explain to others why the good die young….not because they did anything WRONG but because they got a chance to go Paradise, and wait there for the rest of us. JMHO. Peace…
Well, I am ready to go at any time. this is but a stopping place for eternity. I am not afraid of death, but the process disturbs me because as a medical provider, I believe we as a nation do a very poor job in “dying”.
