Our Sovereign Lord sustains His own. There is no greater blessing or assurance.
Rest in Him.
I’m very sorry for your loss, Danae, but rejoice with you at your father’s home-going, as well.
Thank you for your loving words...
And thank you, my FRiend, for your inspiring words. May God be with you and your mother and give you solace and comfort.
Prayers for you and your family, that all of you will get through the next trying week with grace and dignity.
God is with you all, and He has blessed you immensely.
When my father died, I was 17. He, too, died of cancer, but I’ve never grieved for him. I loved him dearly, and learned many things at his knee. It’s OK to not grieve just because it’s “expected” or “the right thing to do.” There are many ways of handling the loss. Your way is the right way for you.
You know, we ask for prayers for healing, when someone we love is stricken with a dread disease, or is injured severely, but we have to remember that God heals in many ways. Sometimes there is physical healing, and our loved ones are returned to us, whole, in this life. Sometimes there is spiritual healing, and though they may be taken from us, we know they're waiting for us, and we won't be making that final journey alone.
God Bless your family, and give repose to your Dad's soul.
I don’t think that is at all weird. As my father crossed over, his music list was playing nest to the bed. Celine Dion was singing, I can’t recall right now which one. Of course we were crying... and what comes on next?
“You ain’t nothin but a Hound Dog” by Elvis.
We cracked up laughing. Because that was SO just like my Dad! It WAS my dad! It was just so perfect... lol
The house creaked all night it seemed, footsteps that we could hear but no one was there. People called that we had not spoken to for years, my 90 year old great uncle from Florida, Uncle Lou, he called the next day, though no one had called him yet. Dad was flying free.
So no I don’t consider that in the least strange.
So if we are nuts, then we are the same kinda nuts and that works for me! :)
That is exactly what I was thinking this morning. My tears are now for me, and my Mom.
Grief is a bizarre journey. I have no clue where its going to lead.
I thank GOD he is free!
:) Thanks my friend. I believe my uncle is coming down soon, he will be piping for the celebration I think! :)
Thank you Bray!
This is why I have not been writing much lately. I have just had no time to do it. Eugene isn’t that far away, but its far enough to require I do a lot to make it possible to get down there and be there for as long as I can.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
They are priceless. Thank you!
What a awesome tribute to your Dad. May you know the comfort of that love in the coming days.
I lost my dad almost exactly a year ago. All of us—my mom and siblings—were able to make it to his bedside and express love before he died. It was so meaningful to have that opportunity. It’s so important to say the important things—to have no regrets. It appears that you have done that.
Prayers for God’s blessings on all.
