I wonder if there are many like me out there who are amazed how much God is addressed through this fight for life. I just wanted to say that there was a time when I figured some people hid behind God to avoid what is going on in thier lives.
When I was diagnosed with Cancer my mother asked me "Are you praying?" This coming from a woman who turned her back on it when I was a teen. That had a great impact on me. She suggested if I wasn't I had better start.
I have struggled with this issue. Not out of anger or sympathy. I have struggled with the whole higher power thing. I saw judgements and the almightier than thou ones. But like many things my mother said this was worth considering. Marianne Williamson wrote Illuminata and this book changed truly who I view God. I guess I have been praying all along just didn't know it.
Keeping you all close at heart.
