I want to thank those of you who gave to help his medical bills and to those that have been praying for him." Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away."James 4:14
The comfort is that he will never suffer again and as a Christian he is with his Heavenly Father.
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”
I was feeling rather emotional today upon hearing the sad news. Mostly because this boy is an orphan. He's had a hard life so far and had to fight this terrible cancer. No doubt he went through periods of not really understanding what was happening to him especially during the chemotherapy sessions which weakened him a lot. I am also grieving for the fact that he will never have an opportunity to reach his potential here on earth though in Kenya that is a very hard thing to do when you live in poverty. Right now I am glad that this young man will never pain and poverty again.
In addition to the comfort of the biblical promises, I often find comfort in God's creation and from seeing nature close up. Today it was in my garden.
I could hear the birds singing so beautifully. Their warbling drew me outside.
I wasn't able to capture the birds in photo. They are very well camouflaged in the trees and they fly away so quickly. But I was delighted to find bees enjoying the flowers in the garden.
Beyond the enjoying the birds and the bees in the garden, I enjoyed the beautiful colours of nature.
I like the flowers and plants reflected in the bird bath.
