He's Home


At last.

Dad laid aside his unworthy and worn out earth suit today and received his new and stellar wardrobe. It’s a perfect fit, having been sized and made long ago in preparation for this day. My dad’s got it goin’ on. He’s stylin’.

Wish I could see him as he is now. Soon enough.

I’ll write more in a day or two.

Thank you, my friends.

    Hi friend, that robe will look majestic on your dad, I am sure. Maybe...maybe God can show you just a glimpse. In the midst of loss, there is a joy that is beyond words. He is indeed home, and we are all on our way there as well, since the earth is not really our home anyway, but it is far better to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

    But while we are still here for a reason, I pray that you will find comfort for your loss, and I just feel that I would like to say that God will cover your heart, and hold you like a Father is holding His child. Orphaned child on earth, but with the incredible riches of an always present and loving Heavenly Father.

    I pray that you will experience His Holy Spirit hovering over you and carrying you through, you and your family.

    Love,
    Carla

    Ralph,

    Thinking of you today and praying for you and your family for strength and peace..."that you may not grieve like others, who have no hope."

    Love in Christ,

    Emily
