I Am So Thankful For My Dad
Posted on May 23 2019
It's been 10 years today since my dad died unexpectedly. I never got to say goodbye. I've been going through my baby book today that he wrote in so sweetly recording everything I did. I was daddy's girl through and through. It seems like just yesterday and yet it seems like forever since I've heard his voice. Honestly there were times when I didn't know if mom and I would make it through and if not for our faith and for Brantley and his dad I don't know what we'd have done. Brantley had just lost his mom a little over 4 months prior. So today and everyday I am so thankful for my dad.
I still am in awe of how he had so much time to devote to me with all else he did. I was blessed beyond words to have him as my dad. Psalm 34:18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
