Psalm 23:4 (ESV)
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
Today marks the 18 anniversary of my dad entering his eternal retirement home. In honor of my dad I wanted to share a little something I put together to honor my dad.
Dear Dad in Heaven
I sit here and I ponder how very much
I’d like to talk to you today
There are so many things
That I would like to say
I know how much you cared for me
And how much I cared for you
And each time that I think of you
I miss you so very much
It was such a sad day when the angel came and called your name
And took you by the hand and said
Your retirement was ready in Heaven, far above....
And that you dearly loved
You had so much to live for; you had so much to do
It still seemed impossible, that God was taking you
But I held on to the words you shared the night before
God’s timing is perfect, He is never early and never late
And though your life on earth is through,
in Heaven it started anew
You’ll live for eternity just as God has promised you
And though you’ve walked through Heavens gates
We are never far apart
For each time I think of you, I rejoice that I will see you again someday
I love you Dad!!!!!
Dear Lord, we thank You for the blessed hope that we have in You. Even though it’s hard to lose those we love it’s comforting to know that we will be reunited with them again someday. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
