2 years ago today


Can't believe its been two years since we said goodbye to Dad, the most invincible, smartest, and caring doctor you'll ever meet. I've learned and grieved so much since then and yes still the sadness remains, its become a part of me. I remain shocked at how a supposed veteran of faith (believer for 16 years!) like myself was so utterly rattled and yet my Dad a new believer through fire taught me so much. In fact, its safe to say in the midst of the valley while Dad uttered the 23rd Psalm with assurance I borrowed and clung to his faith. So once again Dad thank you for the ongoing lessons of life and faith; I love and miss you more than words. More about my Dad and his story here.

"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze." Isaiah 43:2

How I wish I knew your dad. I feel like I get to a little, though, when you write about him like this.

My heart is with you guys today.
