In the wee hours of the morning this morning, my dad went to be with the Lord. It is so weird to think that right now he is in heaven with Jesus Christ.
Today was a snow day anyway, so we are just hanging out, so it's nice to be "home"
I loved my daddy. I still do. It is going to be so weird without him, but I know that my Heavenly Father is looking out for me!
The Visitation is going to be on Friday night, and the Funeral is going to be on Saturday.
Romans 5:1 was a verse that my dad had, and so this morning as I was reading my Bible, I turned over there. And I read a little farther than verse one, but read this:
"We have been made right with God because of our faith. Now we have peace with him because of our Lord Jesus Christ. Through faith in Jesus we have received God's grace. In that grace we stand. We are full of joy because we expect to share in God's glory. And that's not all. We are full of joy even when we suffer. We know that our suffering gives us the strength to go on. The strength to go on produces character. Character produces hope. And hope will never let us down. God poured his love into our hearts. He did it through the Holy Spirit, whom he has given to us." Romans 5:1-5
"We are full of joy when we suffer..." That describes my dad! He had joy in the journey.
I will always love and miss my dad, but with Jesus Christ, family, and friends- I know that I can go on, especially because of Christ.
