Father's Day Reflections

Father's day has come and gone.  We kept busy with church, a church-wide luncheon, and a church meeting, that I didn't really have a lot of time to just sit and think.  It's probably a good thing.

Every time I think I've made it through the grief, I realize once more that my dad is gone and miss him all over again.  So, I made it through Father's day...but the past couple of days, I've been down...I've been having lots of thoughts about my dad.  It saddens me that my twins were the age I was when my grandmother died, but I don't remember her much at all.  I just want my boys to remember him.

He was such a great man of God.  I miss him so much!

"Save a Place for Me"  Matthew West

Don't be mad
If I cry
It just hurts so bad, sometimes
'Cause everyday it's sinking in
And I have to say goodbye all over again

You know I bet it feels good to have the weight of this world off your shoulders now
I'm dreaming of the day when I'm finally there with you

Save a place for me
Save a place for me
I'll be there soon
I'll be there soon
Save a place for me
Save some grace for me
I'll be there soon
I'll be there soon

I have asked the questions why
But I guess the answers for another time
So instead I pray, with every tear
And be thankful for the time I had you here


I wanna live my life Just like you did
Make the most of my time Just like you did
And I want to make my home up in the sky Just like you did
Oh, but until I get there...
Until I get there...
