Soul Snack: Then Sings My Soul Saturday

This week was the 4-year anniversary of my dad’s passing. I couldn’t think of a better song to share.

You know, I miss him so much. I suppose I will for the rest of my days, until I meet him in Heaven. I will definitely wrap my arms around his neck and tell him how much I missed him. Well, right after I get up from worshipping at Jesus’ feet :-) Oh, that day will be a beautiful day, for sure!

On Tuesday, my BFF brought me a gift. I was joking “Oh no, did I forget a holiday or something” because I am notorious for doing that. Well, as soon as I saw the card and read her words I lost it, and I don’t *lose* it too easily. I knew it was the day, I just think God had me occupied with other stuff so my heart could rest until I had her there with me as I remembered.

I’ve read so much about loss lately. It makes my heart cry. I want to carry the burden for each of those people who have suffered. I know, as Christians, we are supposed to lift one another up and I want to do that. But, I also know that the only one who can really provide the peace, comfort and love is Jesus Christ. I’ll take those burdens to His feet when I pray. I know He is listening. Isaiah 58:9 says he’ll reply to us quickly. He is answering these prayers but it’s not always our timing or way. His will is sovereign and perfect, but sometimes it still hurts.

Enjoy this song today. And, just think about the day you can finally be home…right where you belong! To hear some other great songs, click here to visit Amy @ Signs, Miracles and Wonders.

    I love this song too.

    I tend to think of God and my Mom. I lost her about 4 years ago to cancer and I tend to look at this song as what she has already had the privilege of. I think I am kinda jealous. :)

    Thanks for posting this.

    I lost my dad 12 years ago this week. It’s hard sometimes but it does get better. I’ve decided this year that every Valentines day, I will make a big dinner to share with my mom, sister, and our families…in my dad’s honor. The song you have really touched me and I thank you for the smile it put on my face.

    God Bless You!

    Wow, thanks for sharing. It will be 6 years in July since I lost my dad and it is still hard. It is difficult that many people my age (late 20s) have not lost a parent and don’t know what that loss is like. You have such an amazing friend to think of you and be there for you! Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts and this song…it helps to know there are others out there that understand.

    Le – thank you for your sweet words and for leaving a comment! I truly appreciated it!!

    Seesawfaith – I am so sorry for our loss! What a great way to look at it – even though our God is a jealous God, I think this kind of longing is what He wants our hearts to entail!

    Christy – What a sweet tradition to start! It has gotten better but I’m thankful for the memories I do have of him when he was in good health.

    SensibleMomma – it is hard to have others understand losing a loved one in younger years. I was 26 when I lost him and didn’t have our youngest son. He’ll know him through my memories and pictures. And, my friend is pretty amazing. Another blessing from God!!
