Moral Question

Bill and I will celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary on Tuesday.  In the last two months, three long-married friends have lost spouses.  During my prayers, I suggested to God that it hardly seemed fair for two people to join together and become one, faithfully to make a life together, then to be cast adrift by the loss of that most significant other. Prophets in the old testament were always negotiating with God.  Is there a flaw in my argument?  What do you think?
Enough of philosophy.  Have a wonderful holiday, remembering the baby that made it all worthwhile.

    Our God is a loving god who does not take our loved ones from us. We are not his puppets. Stuff happens–like heart attacks, accidents, cancer, etc. So many things happen in this imperfect world, I could never begin to list them all. However, we may be sure that God is with us in difficult times. He offers us strength and comfort in our times of grief through his Word and the promises therein. (Revelation 21:4)
