cherished moments

in these days after my dad went on to be with the Lord...i have found it hard to harness my emotions and thoughts.

i have enjoyed remembering past experiences and times spent with my dad
but at the same time have the profound knowledge we will not be making
any more memories together.

it has been a great comfort to me to absolutely know i will see him day.

i do so appreciate the fact that i was blessed with a dad that gave his heart to the Lord and generously taught me about Jesus.

there are many memories of my dad, witnessing about his own personal testimony is a strong one for me. he was an active, rugged man with many wonderful characteristics.
when he worked for the railroad as an engineer just one of my fond memories was him packing his bible everyday into his leather grip that he took to work everyday. i remember thinking, if a man's man like my daddy can take his faith to work and share it with anyone at the drop of a hat...i want to be able to do the same thing.
there are too many words, memories, thoughts, to share but i loved my daddy and i know he loved me and that is the best gift a daughter can be given.
