BirthDeathBirth?

Our preacher’s wife died today. She had health problems to begin with, but I don’t think any of us expected her to die so quickly. I know the preacher must be pretty tore up — he loved her a lot and took care of her.
I’m going to miss her, too.

I wonder if dying is like giving birth?

I mean, it can be painful. Sometimes it happens quickly, or it could take a long time. For Christians, there is the hope of something joyful at the end of all the pain. It’s a time when you (may) want those you love the most close by.

Maybe it’s like going through labor but at the same time being the one who is being born?
