My Dad

My dad's life is over I heard today. My heart feels sad yet I will rejoice. No more pain or sorrow or tears for him. In every little yellow flower I shall see his smiling face and in my children's songs his wonderful voice lives on. When I look at all the many pics he took of me I know that he loved me more than he ever said. I shall remember his art, the Christmas lights he put up each year, his old black and white movies - being the joker at the social gatherings with family and friends - he loved his books and he loved romance and he loved life. I see him in that yellow knitted pullover that he wore so often when I was a child and I miss the good times but I shall find joy in the journey...that's what he wanted me to do.

God is in control

My youngest daughter just finished off her last school exams ever! My eldest daughter is getting married in two weeks time. With the good news comes the bad news. My Dad is very ill and we don't know how much longer we will have him with us and if he is even going to make it to the wedding.
God remains in control. He is before things, and in Him all things hold together. Collosians 1:17.
I shall hold onto His promises. He is eternal. I will place my entire trust and faith in the living Christ. I will survive! Yes Lord, the workmanship of Your creation bears testimony to Your great glory. Amen
