CHURCH FLOWERS TO CHEER THE WAY
Send me your photographs
From a small lad I've often questioned does God exist? In times of trouble I've had my doubts, take the time my darling gran died, I swear I was near to having a break down. Again watching the Twin Towers in America tumbling down I couldn't imagine why any all powerful God would not intervene, but every time I came back to believing. That is until this latest upset in our lives. You see my darling wife Irene suffers from that crippling disease called Osteoporosis, but just to turn the screw a little more she also has dementia. This all happening to a lady who is an angel who lives on earth. We could cope with the first awful crippling disease, and since using a drug called Aricept we have managed to overcome most of what dementia can throw at us. The secret is to remain calm, and take it slowly, not easy for me, but gradually I've mastered it, or at times I think I have. That was all very well while it remained between Irene and I, but since other people, all departed from this world, and a certain clone of myself, things have become very stressful especially when at three thirty in the morning she know longer knows me. Oh there is an all singing and dancing drug that was able to kick ol' illusion in to touch, but wouldn't you know it had a side effect, and a very serious one at that. There is a remote chance it could cause a stroke, or so we were told. Since things have got a whole ton worse we are trying it at a reduced rate. I might add this was a decision that wasn't taken lightly by the girls and I, and I pray God helps us a little, even if it's to keep us calm in our hour of need.
Oh you thought I'd given up on God? Not on your life, I figure if the great Darwin couldn't see beyond the wonders of this world. I can't be taken to task for having doubts, just because God can't help in every ones problems. It is obvious to me you have to look at the complete picture, way before mankind was roaming around this turbulent planet. Unfortunately I can never see God as man, but I know God is there, but only as the something that placed elements in place to start the whole Shebang. It is only then that I can except all this good and bad in every religion that mankind ever invented, and believe me not one of these is free from breaking the rules. To end there is a sentence from the bible that I love and it's this, `Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth' and because this world is such a beautiful place without mans help, I pray it's true. Now to show you what the ladies of The Holy Epiphany Church did with the two buckets of flowers I sent them, Chris across the road supplied Asters, and seasonable berries.
