three surgeries

Three of my friends are going to have surgeries in the next month.  Two of them are my age and it’s quite sobering.  Have we really gotten old enough that health is no longer something we can take for granted?  I provide care to sick people all the time.  It’s my job, my vocation, my calling.  Lately, I have had to care for my friends as well.  I’m grateful to be the one providing support rather than needing the support.  I am grateful I can be helpful to those who are in need.  I wish my friends weren’t sick.  I wish God would heal them completely.  I hope they wake up from surgery and recover without complications.  One of my friend has a brain tumor.  I’m saddened, deeply.  Why?  God, why?  There are no answers, at least none that I can discern.  But I know this.  God is with us.  In sickness and in health, just as newly weds vow to each other, God is with us in sickness and in health.
