Yesterday's sermon given by a guest preacher was based on the Beatitudes. I am really struggling with thinking that my mother was blessed during her last year, but the first beatitude is, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." I would not consider that the horror that my mother experienced during her last year was very blessed. I certainly did not feel blessed during that time. Certainly when she took her last breath, I felt that she was finally blessed, but why did she have to struggle for all that time first? I know there is no answer to my question, so I'm not really asking for anyone to answer it, unless you really know why. I really liked this pastor, though. His enthusiasm was great! We're presently looking for a pastor.
