Dad's Final Journey

Dad's Final Journey
With scripture born serenity
 his lot in life was freely accepted.
 Anxiety escaped all reasoning 
as his journey in earthly flesh ended.
 Peace now becomes his crown
 worn on the banks of contentment.
 A new body and a heavenly home 
the rewards for his commitment.
"I have learned, in whatever state I am, 
therewith to be content."-Philippians 4:11

In honor of my Father, who passed from this life on July 17th, 2012.  He quoted this scripture from his bed of confinement to many who came to visit.  He accepted his final departure long before we did.  Though we mourn his passing...we rejoice knowing he is now in his heavenly home.

    May grace bestill your waning hours as they did for your Dad. And when tomorrow shares it's day, may you not feel so sad. :) May we all live in the state of God's grace.
