Reflections on Edward Kennedy’s death

Edward Kennedy died from a prolonged brain tumor diagnosed just 15 months ago. I’m looking at this scenario from a different perspective than most. I was diagnosed with a brain tumor last November. No one knows how long it grew on the left side of my temporal brain near my optic nerve. Mine could have been cancerous. In my case, it was not. Kennedy’s was cancerous, and proved fatal to him.

Many family members and extended family and friends are mourning. Regardless of my political beliefs, he was a human being. A son, brother, husband, father, uncle, and grandfather.

His results could have been mine as well. I don’t know why God chose to allow me to live. I do know His ways are not my ways and His thoughts are not my thoughts.

Proof life is fragile and precious. I don’t know from one day to the next if I will still be walking and talking on Planet Earth. I do need to be sure I make each day count and take every opportunity to let others know the hope that resides inside my heart. The Creator of the entire universe is in control and has my best interests in mind. God said it, I believe it, and that settles it for me!
