David LinsCatholic Thoughts

God knows what we are going through - Because He has never left our side

05-21-2017David Lins

As many of you know, I’ve suffered a few significant losses over the first forty three years of my life. Although the circumstances are fairly unique, suffering catastrophic loss in and of itself is anything but unique.

Just as you might not be able to comprehend courts changing laws and an adoption being halted after only ten months of raising a baby girl who already calls you “dada,” I cannot comprehend losing my wife after decades of marriage.

Many of us have had to suffer unimaginable loss at various points in our lives. It was as if we were admitted membership to a club we never applied to join. Yet, once admitted, we discovered a thing or two.
