I've been hearing about this story and all I have to say is Pat Robertson is wrong.
This is not Biblical. No debate.
I also pray he never has to deal with a loved one with Alzheimer's.
I was given the gift of 5 years with my dad during his journey with Alzheimer's. It was not always easy, happy, and joyful. It was hard to watch him disappear a little at a time. It was hard to make decisions for him that he couldn't make for himself. It was hard to watch him struggle and eventually succumb to this horrible disease.
But I would not trade that time for anything.
It was a gift from God at the end of a rocky road. There were moments of laughter, moments of tears, moments of unfiltered love and I'm the better for having walked that road.
Dad is in heaven, enjoying his rewards. And I'm here, enjoying my memories of him.
This blog just spurred me on today.
