This Fathers’ Day, I have resolved not to just mourn his passing, but to rejoice in the eternal life he shares with all who bask in the Light of the Holy Spirit.
He has passed from sight, but not from mind. The commandment of the Lord to honor him is all the more binding on my thoughts, words and deeds now that he enjoys a life eternal.
Around from all the neighboring towns
The grieving family ran,
And cursed the fickle sickness that
Had felled so good a man.
His loss, they said, was sore and sad
Tears welled in every eye;
He was a spouse; a friend; a ‘Dad’,
“Not fair” that he should die.
But solace comes to those whos’ sight,
Discerns what Grace implied:
This man lives on in Gods’ sweet Light,
The Sin it was that died.
