SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT


February 2011


SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
My friend, Jim, was dying from a failing heart. He went home to spend his remaining time with his faithful wife who took care of his daily needs. I didn't know Jim's situation until two months before he died. We talked. and he seemed at peace with his life. I prayed nightly that God would bring him 'home' gently. Jim died last week. His wife, Barbara, told me two days from his passing, he told a Hospice nurse he had two days left, and he turned to Barbara saying its time to go to the hospital. The last night Jim and Barbara ate together. He was cheerful. She turned away for a moment, looked back, and saw Jim had died WITH A SMILE ON HIS FACE. Is it not fair to wonder if God had whispered his remaining time and told him to leave for the hospital? I think He did. And I thank God for giving Jim grace.
