It was about a month ago that we laid my father to rest. He had battled with Alzheimer's for years and passed away from a heart attack.
I thought I had experienced pain before, but nothing hurt like the hole burned into my soul when I got the news that my dad was gone.
Dad was a brilliant man who loved the Lord with all his heart. He spoke several languages. and told everyone about the Jesus Christ.
I believe that is why his memorial service was more a celebration of life and not a mourning. We were extremely sad at his passing, but I am confident that he is in heaven right now.
It's more than being a great person and a good man full of compassion. My father gave his heart to Jesus.
Faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to have salvation. Read John 14:6 where Jesus says I am the way.
The pain is not so raw now. But I miss my dad dearly. I am blessed because now I have two fathers watching over me from heaven.
Dad and Jesus are keeping their eyes on me and that gives me tremendous peace right now.
if you have suffered loss, I pray that you will seek the comfort of Jesus. Oh, how He loves you so!
The Furnace of Affliction
I remember the agony of being in love and losing that love—I was curled up in a fetal position, crying like a newborn baby because the person I was engaged to be married to had walked away.
