A Welcome Home For Dad

My wonderful, loving father passed into glory yesterday with all of us right by his side. Immediately after he took his last breath God sent a bright ray of sunshine through what had been a very cloud covered sky. The sun lasted just a few minutes, but was a reminder to us that God was very close. Then the clouds returned. I will be forever grateful for the blessing he was to me through the years. I am not crying tears for him, I promised him that I wouldn't cry for him when he was gone, but I am crying tears for me. (see the song below that reminds me of what he said to me) I miss him so much already.

Rachel, I am so sorry for your loss. It must have been very hard to say goodbye.

Sending a hug your way, and keeping you all in prayer.

What an awesome loving Father we have in Heaven to bring a ray of sunshine into our lives just at that moment. When my heart is heavy and I miss my earthly Dad, I will have that moment to remember.

Me too Martha. Every time I think about that I get choked up.
