I do apologize for not writing more often these last two days but I have had to work more at my pastor job. A dear member of our congregation has been very ill and she died this morning and now I have to the part of the job I dislike the most – saying goodbye. That said I will try to write more tomorrow as writing has a way of being my solace in a weary world. That said my own grief is very high as she was a dear sheep to me and to the Lord, so you will have to bear with me.
I remember some time ago I wrote a Theology Pub on the Angel of Death and at the time it caused a stir because of the picture I used. Had people bothered to actually read it, they would have discovered my feeble attempt to try to get people to understand that the image we have of the angel of death is all in the eye of the beholder. I have often felt like an angel of death. I show up when people are mortally ill and they die often in as little as a few days. It happens a lot more than I would like and at times it makes me feel uncomfortable. It takes a lot of getting used to be at the side of the bed of the dying. My thoughts are that the saints see a far different version of the angel of death than the sinner though because of what I have experienced.
I would do a rundown but I have no strength for it. It has been a long two days of grief and love.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
