What Do You Say In The Face Of Illness?

Mary Magdalene, in a dramatic 19th-century pop...

Please, Oh Lord help!

What do you say to a dear, dear friend when their spouse is in the hospital deathly ill? Are there words enough to convey how much you care, how much you wish to help, but can’t? Is just being there on the phone listening to them cry enough? Telling them you are praying for them, you believe their spouse will hopefully be ok and pull out of this, they are strong, they are in the best place possible for care.

Can your love, sympathy and empathy shine through? Can our prayers help? I certainly hope so to all of the above. I feel so helpless, but these are the things I have been offering and I hope they are helping, or at least give some sense of solace to a dear friend and her husband through the rough days ahead through the traumatic days of dealing with a serious illness in the SICU…

I’m here for you my dear friend, I love you and am praying and thinking of you and your husband constantly at this terribly rough time…

If you believe in prayer, please say a prayer for my dear dear friends Maria & Koby, her sick husband in SICU. Thank You.
