Jesus did you know…I have not an earthly Father to celebrate on what would be his 68th birthday today! 38 years he has been gone, wow!
Jesus did you know…The night he took his life with gun in hand and shed his own blood he too shed the blood from our hearts
Jesus did you know…As I heard the piercing scream as my mom dropped the phone. Deafeated at all costs his earthly soul gone. In a moment our lives changed
Jesus did you know…I was only 9, but I remember the anger raging through me. Sitting on a neighbors lap. Watching my mom sobbing. Raising my fist to the heavens asking how could you do this. Remembering her pleads, “please don’t do it”. 200 miles away. There was not even a phantasm of hope left when the gun rung loud. I often wonder how she has managed to be okay?
Jesus did you know…I don’t have a lot of memory of the times we shared, but every picture says in sentiment I was a daddy’s girl through and through. He taught me to read, write, and ride my blue banana seat bike. I do know he loved me
Jesus did you know…Yes just as you know the count of every hair on my head, and that of my next thought. I need not wonder. You have purposed this all for your good. I may not have an earthly Father, but I have a heavenly one that loves beyond any measure I can compare. Unconditional, merciful, and gracious. How great a love I have found in you!!
Jesus you know!
Happy Heavenly Birthday Daddy, 68 years old! You were a troubled soul, but you gave your heart to Jesus. I know one day with all certainty I will see you again! Jesus knows!
