Hi Mo, I was thinking about you earlier today and was wondering how you are. I don't think "O" was referring to you personally, but speaking more about some of the members of my church who believe I am being punished for some great unrepented sin. A couple of years ago when my dear pet was dying one woman said this was God's way of punishing me. My beloved Missy was fifteen years old and had congestive heart failure. While Missy's death and the death of sweet little Bernie (another dog who mourned himself to death three weeks after Missy), was so painful, I felt this was just the way of nature not God's wrath.
I admit I do feel confused at times when considering spiritual matters that I have always taken as a matter of couse and never really questioned. It is easy to have pat answers when you are judging others, its much harder when you are the afflicted one. Anyway the point I wanted to make is that I have no body to discuss this matter with in "real" life and wanted the opinions of my Curezone friends.
October is a difficult month for me at best. Both of my parents and a grandparent died in October. Its a sad month for me.
I appreciate everyone taking the time to both comfort and state some interesting opinions. I will have a lot to think on tonight. I appreciate y'all so much.
