Find Me On

Yesterday was kind of bittersweet for me. It would have been my dad’s 63rd birthday. For the past 10 years, he has been celebrating his birthday in Heaven with Jesus. He’s one lucky dude! However, knowing that he is in a wonderful place with no more pain and tears….doesn’t mean I don’t miss him every day and selfishly wish I could have him back. Especially on the “special” days….Father’s Day, Christmas, his birthday, etc.

Instead of being sad yesterday…I was actually very happy and very very proud. My 11 year old daughter got Baptized…making the day a happy occasion indeed, and giving us a big reason to celebrate. Of course I recorded it! I tried to hold the camera steady…but heck, I was crying those happy tears! I am blessed to have a daughter so on fire for the Lord…and at such a young age. I pray she continues to grow and to be a blessing to many others in the years to come. My dad, being the preacher he was and loving the Lord and his family above all else…would have been just as proud of her as I am.  God has good things in store for her =)

How wonderful for you and I know your Father is proud!


I can really relate to your missing your dad, particularly on the special days you mentioned. My dad has been gone for many many years now but I always remember to wish him Happy Birthday every June 25. Though I miss hearing the sound of his voice, I do take comfort in knowing he is still always with me.


Praise God! What a wonderful celebration your family had along with all of heaven on this day! Thanks so much for sharing!


congratulations. it’s great that a sad day was made into one that can later be a celebration for you as well.
