Looking back at the video I shared last night, and the massive pile of CDs my dad already converted and I need to go through, all I can say is that I am blessed.
Nothing but God is eternal. One day the people you love will join Him in eternity. One day you will leave the ones you love behind as you pass on from this life to join Him.
Cherish every moment with the ones you love while you are both here on the Earth. When you look back to those whom have passed before, do not waste time on grief.
Do not let the grief rob you of the joy of knowing that the ones you love have finally obtained a peace that we shall never truly understand.
Focus on the good they brought to your life, do not waste your days on pain that will not follow you through that narrow gate at the end. Find joy in their passing and their peace.
I know as I pour through these collected memories, I may not take my own advice. I’m sure at moments, I will absolutely grieve. Most of the time though, I will seek the joy in every captured moment.
I will thank God, for He has blessed me with the family I have, the father I had, and this life I live.
In Jesus name, amen.
