I am just losing my mind here, so please bear with me and pray for me.
I was recently made the music director of my parish, and tonight I am going to be the director for the mass where the archbishop will be in attendance. I am nervous but totally preoccupied with recent news.
Many of you know that I have just recently managed to build a good relationship with my father after a very rocky past. I also have talked about how his health is failing. Well, last night I got the call that his kidneys are starting to fail. Doctors say that this is a very severe circumstance and if they can’t get his blood sugar under control we may lose him very soon. I am just going out of my mind about this.
He doesn’t go to church, and he says he does love God and Jesus…but he doesn’t really work to learn about them. He is a fallen away baptist.
Guys, I am terrified I am going to lose him and all the while I am wondering two things that I know are just stupid: I just need encouragement!
Why is God taking my dad after I just got him back? Why is he taking him so early? He should have at least another 20 years!
One of the joys of heaven according to some is being reunited with loved ones. How can I go through life not knowing if I’ll ever see my father again? My heart breaks for this!
If you can’t respond to either of these, please just pray for me.
