Aching heart thread - 03/26/2009


From OCICBW:
THE DYING OF THE LIGHT

From Lisa:

Just got back from the hospital about half an hour ago.

I'm losing Ian. His condition is deteriorating, he's getting weaker. He's fought for the last month just to stay stable, but he's now beginning to lose the fight. The illness has now completely overwhelmed him. They've thrown every treatment they can think of at him and nothing has worked. There are no more treatments left to give him. I'm losing my lovely lovely husband, the love of my life. I've been advised that I need to start thinking about making the decision to cease treatment.

I just feel sick.

Lisa

We all weep with Lisa and hold her and Ian in love and light.

Please bless yourself with this.

Tonight is not a time for Lent.

In the first light of Easter
glory broke from the tomb
and changed the women's sorrow into joy.
From the Garden the truth shone clear
that he whom they had loved and lost
was with them now in every place
for ever.
--Scottish Liturgy 1982
Fadia El-Hage - Kyrie Eleison traditional



There are many other prayers to be offered but my heart is too burdened for Lisa and Ian right now to name them.
