We Love You Dad


Psalm 139:13-16
For you formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother's womb.
I will give thanks to you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.

My dad passed away at 2:30 this afternoon. All of us were standing around his bed which is just the way he wanted it. I am thankful for God's perfect timing that allowed us all to be together. The funeral will be on Tuesday at 2:00 at Mt. Sinai. Thank you to everyone who is praying for us. We are grateful.

My Dear Sister,
You and your family will be in my prayers. I am so sorry for your loss. It seems only yesterday that I lost my own dad. He was a young man of 60, and saying goodbye to him was hard. I will be praying for your endurance and reliance on the Lord as you go through these next few days and weeks. You are loved and prayed for by many... Julie W.

Lauren,
I am so sorry. I don't even know what to say. Thank you for your blogs this whole time - God has been greatly glorified through your words, as they are a reflection of your life and your dad's life. Your love for God and for your dad have meant a lot to me, as it has motivated and encouraged me so much. Thank you so much for sharing that with us.
