There are days when it just hurts. You get bad news and once the shock subsides the pain is raw.
Yesterday was one of those days for me. Finding out my little brother was diagnosed with lupus, an autoimmune disease that will make the rest of his life more difficult and painful, hurts like crazy.
Next week, he turns 25.
l couldn’t help but think is that’s so young to be faced with a chronic illness (well, actually another chronic illness). Perhaps that is unfair of me, but it is the truth.
Yesterday, I fluctuated between “Why?” “This isn’t fair,” and just wanting to cry. I know there are treatments. I also know that God is still in control and He is still good.
But my heart still aches.
