it is overwhelming. Sometimes I wonder if anything can possibly be good. Sometimes it all seems too much like always pushing the rock uphill. A good friend was to go into Saint Joseph's this morning for a heart cath and stint -- and he was transferred but only after another 70 year old man had reached the end of his endurance. The 70 year old's wife had been in the hospital for several weeks. The man went into the hospital at 6:15 this morning and shot his 70-year-old wife, who was a patient in the intensive care unit. He then shot himself. She had been in the hospital a long time and her recovery was not going well -- so in desparation he picked up his gun. What agony he must have been in! What agony he has left behind.
And then someone on TV quoted Romans 8:28 "All things work together for good..." and I can't accept that. Sometimes it just all bad. And this is just all bad.
