I saw the face of death

I am overcome with gratitude. To sit with a person who is in the throes of death and see such peace and – dare I say – eagerness to be with God: that is truly humbling.

To ask a man at death’s door “what can I pray for?” and be told “please pray for my wife and children (their grandchildren, actually, because their young daughter had died from cancer recently): that is truly humbling.

To hold his transparent hand and hear his laboured breath while he praises God: that is truly humbling.

To be at the ceremony where his life and death in Christ is celebrated: that, dear reader, is truly humbling.
