Congratulations on giving us a glimpse of how God needs freedom to answer our prayer from a deeper perspective than our preferred agenda. You have taken us into the pain - and beyond it. Great sensitivity in your surprise ending.
This story held my attention all the way through, and is so sad. I am sorry something like this is really going on in your life. You wonder what hurts worse- the cancer or the betrayal. Good job.
Your title is so fitting, the story almost beyond comprehension. Such indifference is impossible to fathom - it is good that we have a God that can rescue our brothers and sisters from depths we can never understand.

You can really feel the raw reality here. Love the ending, with its visual imagery.

Jan may have captured my experience of this piece in the most descriptive way - such a portrayal of raw reality - it possesses an almost documentary tone in its pacing ... my, how hard the human heart can become -

Bravely told.

I agree with previous comments: a horrendous story, but told with sensitivity, strength and understanding of the grace of God. My prayers are with the family and friends.

So sad... God doesn't always heal the physical pain, but His ways are much better than we could ever know.

This must have been a terribly difficult story to tell, but you managed honesty without bitterness... a difficult balancing act, to be sure. Thank you for your courage in sharing this sad, sad story, and for the tribute to God's mercies, too.
A tribute to the grace and the wisdom of God. Very well written.
