When I get to Heaven, I'm going to have some questions.
Lots of them.

Things like: Why do we have mosquitoes? Is there really a need for huge, furry spiders? And why do my girls have such screechy voices at times?

Then I'll have another question: Why do such bad things happen? Is it really necessary to go through some of the trials that take place?

We just had a good friend pass away. He was only 31 years old. He was diagnosed with cancer of the tongue somewhere around February, and it just happened so fast! He leaves behind a family, a wife, siblings, an eight year-old step-son that he adored...why?
Why is it that sometimes God heals and sometimes He says no?
My heart hurts.
Shawn was a great guy. He was a good friend to my husband, and he loved the Lord with all his heart. He suffered so much these past few months that I'm glad he doesn't have to suffer anymore...but why did he have to in the first place?

I know I can't see what God sees...and I'm glad. I'm pretty sure I couldn't handle it. I'm just wondering why...
And someday I'll ask.

Shawn, you will be missed. You were a great friend, and although we didn't want to see you go, we know you are safe in the arms of Jesus. No more pain, no more suffering, no more you can stand whole and in peace with the Lord.
