My post today is dedicated to my children.
Two years ago on this date, their Father went home to be with the Lord.
We speak of him in the present tense because he left so many memories.
So on this historic day commemorating Palm Sunday, I pray for my big little ones and others who have lost loved ones so dear.
Gone is David Lee from this earth, but his memory lives forever in the hearts of the lives that he touched!
The Bible teaches us much about death. Nothing lives forever, but the Bible speaks of this phenomenal called The Resurrection which gives us hope; hope of life again; hope to see our loved ones again; hope that eases the mourning of your heart.
In John Chapter 14, Jesus said:
1 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.”
When we lose a loved one, there is an emptiness, a void.
It hurts!
Because of Jesus’ love and preparing a way for mankind, we can see our loved ones again. What a joy and privilege that will be!
So, today I offer these words of encouragement to my wonderful, loving, respectful, caring, dutiful … children, Scooter and Phoebe Lee.
I know that there are days that without your Daddy’s arms that you feel unprotected.
You are not!
He is with you in spirit!
Remember his words!
Hear his voice!
Let the memory – of your beloved Daddy, David Lee who departed this earth to be with the Lord on Thursday, April 9, 2015 – stay in your hearts!
Your Daddy guided your hands and taught you so many things.
Strength was one of them.
I pray for your strength in his absence from this earth because he will forever live in your hearts.
I am proud to be your Mother and thank you for lovingly taking care of your Daddy!
May God bless you!
