The Thing About Death

The thing about death is that it is not always fair. It stalks and claims a baby still in the womb or grabs hold of a man who had come back from the bottom and whose family needs him. It skips right over the 90 year old woman who is ready to leave this earth to claim a 16 year old kid just getting started on their life. 

Death isn't always fair but death is part of this life. So while I don't understand how death can claim a friend who had so much to live for, I know that he is in a better place. And while there is nothing left to do but grieve here, I know that he is not suffering anymore. So while death isn't always fair to us here on this earth, death is going to come and offer us a life so much more than what we have now. 

So while we grieve a friend, a spouse, a father, a brother, and a son- rejoice in the life he now has with Jesus and that his suffering is done. Because while death isn't always fair- the reward is amazing.
