Sunset Beauty

"Life is precious." Those were the words of my mother this afternoon after getting back her test results. After being in the hospital since Sunday we now know that what she has is a severe case of colitis. With medication she should be fine in several weeks.

As the evening set over Broward county she looked out the hospital window and commented how different the sunset looks through the eyes of life. When life is uncertain and terminal disease seems inevitable it is difficult not to feel depressed. This evening, however, the sunset is beautiful. I thank God that what could have been, is not. That mom will be with us longer. God is faithful and trustworthy, and I thank him.
Por Su gracia y fidelidad.
