I feel inward tears as I reflect upon the lasting memories. I purpose to understand the black and white finality involved in death.
There's a map that directs us to a place of acceptance, understanding, and peace while taking away the painted darkness that lingers
Believing with my whole being that God would heal you, I diligently prayed. I had no doubt in my mind or did I?
I became a child with mustard seed faith. I stood strong every waking hour while my insides crumbled at the wasting away of your physical body not to mention your mind. I felt winter’s chill grip my heart as I stood by your bed watching decay consume you slowly and painfully.
Yet, I believed with all my heart, soul, and mind that you would be healed. It’s been almost a year since you closed your eyes, and I said goodbye. I've found the map that has allowed me to accept that you’re gone.
I've found understanding from the one that created you. I continually seek peace within this valley of the shadow of death as I find myself amid this place.
You see, Daddy, I know that you are healed, the cancer is gone, the broken bones are restored, and you are happy beside your Creator, but I miss you still.
God is a loving God … You taught me that…
God is my map and I have the Precious Memories
I love you, Daddy
