thirteen years later...

i still miss him.

the longing for his presence in my life is still fierce. the sharpness of it takes me by surprise at times.

my life, our life, is just so good...i want to share it with him. i want him to be here, to be part of what started with him in the first place. i want him to see the fruit that has been born out of the seeds he sowed deeply.

but he's not. he's not here.

so i'll just keep missing him. and thanking God that he was mine to call dad.

easier said then done.

especially today, thirteen years later.

You are blessed to have had such a wonderful, godly father in your life. I know he sowed seeds of love in your life, and I'm thankful he was your dad. Yes, he would indeed be very proud of his daughter and your family of four. Thank you for opening your heart to us today. Love you.

Praying for you, Kate...I know you were very close to your dad and I agree with everyone else, that it would bring him so much joy to see how God has worked in your family!
