A sad day

Four years ago to today my Papaw went to heaven. He was the Dad  in my life. I lived with him and my Mamaw most of my childhood.
He was a good man and God blessed him in life and death. His family gathered around him and sang Amazing grace as he left this life and entered his reward of Heaven.
He loved me and I miss him deeply. 

"A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again." 
~ Enid Bagnold


The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way.

~Psalm 37:23  

Papaw, 
I am so thankful for the love you always gave me.
 Give Jonathan a big hug for me.
I miss you and love you.

Aww Tesha. I get it I really do. I was extremely close to my grandpa. It's been 12 years since he has left us and I swear not a day goes by when i don't share a story with the kids or think about him.

After I Reed went to heaven I had a dream one night of a little boy and my grandpa fishing from a dock and I got the most peaceful feeling watching them. They were happy,they were content, and they had each other and as much fish as they could possibly want.

Praying His comfort for you today, Tesha. Love you, friend.

On the day Grant was born I commented that my Pepaw could teach him all about baseball and they could watch games from Heaven. Hugs friend

Elizabeth said...

He sounds like a special man. I bet he's having a great day today!

I felt great comfort in knowing my grandparents were in heaven with Sarah. Seemed a bit silly when Jesus is there and He's all she needs. I believe God gives us those comforting thoughts.

I can sympathize with you on the hurt of losing loved ones! It just hurts too much when you have more than one angelversary in a short amount of time! Prayers are with you!

Thinking of you today Tesha, this is yet another thing we have in common. We lived with my grandparents growing up. September 18th is my sad day. He left us for heaven at just 64 years of age. I'll never forget finding him (He had heart issues) This year he'll be gone 15 years nearly almost as long as I was blessed to have him.

Last year my grandma joined him, Luke and Adyn in heaven. I can't think of a better couple to share heaven with my two sweet babies.

Sara said...

Tesha, I am praying for you friend... I know how hard these anniversary type days can be. Know that you are in my thoughts often and prayers too!

Thinking of you and praying for you! We got word this weekend that they have given my Papa 1-3 weeks yesterday and we went to say our goodbyes just in case....it was one of the hardest things to do even though I know he will be with Jesus and Granny...he has always been a special part of my life since I was "adopted" into this family when I was 18 (long story there)...he has always treated me as one of his own.

Alecia said...

I will pray for you as you make it through these hard days. Your papaw sounds like an amazing person. I'm sure he and Jonathan are spending time together up in heaven and are so proud of the person that you are.
