My father is sick, he has cancer. After months of unsuccessful treatment, the doctors have laid it out straight for us, he’s got only a short time left. He knows it and he has accepted it. He keeps trying to tell us how he wants things to be done when he is gone, and all the things he wants to do with us to enjoy his last days before he dies.
The problem is that his brothers are not listening, they tell him to stop talking about it because he is not going to die. They said listening to him and accepting all he is saying means we have given up and accepted he is going to die. They won’t allow us to make him happy and have beautiful memories of his last days, they have barricaded him with prayer meetings, morning, afternoon and night, and they keep moving him from one church to the other. They said how can we be praying for the best and planning for the worst?
It’s just me and my two siblings, our mother left when we were young. I am really confused, I am a christian too and I believe in miracles but I also know that it doesn’t happen all the time. Am I being faithless for accepting it and wanting to say a proper goodbye to my father?
