A Day in the Life of NBS...

March 21, 2007 01:16 PM I've got a sister up at Christ giving birth and a 95 year-old great aunt 'round the corner at Deaconess in her waning days (hours?).  Both hospitalizations happened within moments of the other.  The life and death imagery is pretty hard to ignore when it all occurs on the same day.  The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away.  Etc. Etc.  "I am the resurrection and the life."  Etc. Etc. 

And yes, I know there's big news today in the Episcopal/Anglican crack-up.  Someone else has already said what I think about it, so if you're looking for that, go here


I had that same sensation on Sunday, which happened to be the birthday of both my dad (who is days/hours away from passing) and my eldest daughter. Circle of Life, man.
