@ChiCricket, so sorry you are going through all this and that your nephew isn’t doing well. I also have a hard time dealing with understanding a God that would allow the things happening now if it could be prevented. I would love to believe that prayer could help, but my agnostic brain won’t let me go there. I envy those who have faith. But you are not alone, and yes, what I tell people who are hurting is that they are in my thoughts, sending good thoughts and love, etc. And I mean it as heartfelt as if it was a prayer. Which is what I’m sending you for your nephew.
Oh my gosh, Just as I was sending this to you I got your last post. I am so, so sorry to hear of your nephew’s loss. That is just tragic. There are no words. I can only send you hugs and sympathy. 😥
