Happy 1st Birthday in Heaven, Daddy!

“Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.” 

1 Chronicles 16:11 NIV

You left so quickly, Daddy.  We didn't get a chance to say good-bye!  But I know that is how you wanted it, because your earthly body was getting worn out and you didn't want to fade away.  God is merciful and loves us all.  It's been a really hard year without you here, but I know that you are STILL here and we will see each other again.  Please give Mom some extra care; you told me how strong she is, and we all know it, but she still needs some reassurance.  Dear Lord, it's been a rough 24 hours in Boston and all over the world...please hold us close and soften the hearts of those who've forgotten You or denied You.  Dad, we love you and miss you--I took this picture on Easter Sunday and thought about your first Sunday in heaven.  I bet it was musical, triumphant, and loud!  Thought you'd get a kick out of the Easter egg next to your memorial.  I don't need a plaque to think of you all of the time, but it is a nice reminder of your strong yet smooth, warm hands and God the Father's loving hands.  Happy First Birthday in Heaven!  Love, Amy
