Remembering

 

On a Sunday in 1996, on this date, my father got up to get ready for church, then sat in his chair and went to sleep. He woke up to his promised eternal life. Get your Bible and let's go. I'm forever blessed.

These are days we never forget, the day that our loved ones, who have accepted Christ as their Savior, take that last breath and wake up in Heaven.

John 5:24  “Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life."

 

 

Her Daddy Always Said

 

Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes.

I guess because in his eyes she was his diamond mine.

Get your Bible and let’s go.

 

Twenty-three years without her brilliant jewel of a dad.

Has seen her struggle and be more than a tad sad.

Get your Bible and let’s go.

 

Days go by faster now than before.

Still, his memory knocks on her hearts' door.

Get your Bible and let’s go.

 

She listens to the quite example he laid before her.

Yes, ma’am. No, ma’am. Yes, sir, and no, sir.

Get your Bible and let’s go.

 

Without him to polish her stones, she often felt alone.

Finding peace through the Hotline to Heaven phone.

Get your Bible and let’s go.

 

Old as she was, she knew the truth about things.

For her daddy gave his all to give her wings.

Get your Bible and let’s go.

 

Using her wings, the bells of heaven chime.

Her daddy’s words remind her each time.

Get your Bible and let’s go.

 

Reunion time is sooner than not, again they meet.

One day, daddy and daughter together at the Savior’s feet.

Get your Bible and let’s go.
