  • Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

A Father is not like other relationships where you can recall the first time you met him.  The Bible says that we love God because He first loved us; and it was like that with Dad: I grew into an awareness of belonging with him.

I don't believe there can be love without sacrifice  I watched Dad and Mom work hard, worry, try to make ends meet and go without so the four of us children might have a good and healthy life.  Together they pulled off that miracle.

In the spring Dad would watch Angel's Rest Mountain; when the green got to the top it was time to go camping. Anything he touched became music, and everyone around knew to be quite and let him listen when the radio played Floyd Cramer's "Last Date."

A song says, “See you in September; See you when the summer's through.”  This past September Mom finishes her last summer on earth, and now they are together once more.  The green made it to the top of another Angels Rest, and I can imagine them camping in Canaan Land.”

When Dad visited,  you could always count on him jingling his keys about two o'clock; It was time to go home.  Two o’clock came too early for him in this life (I guess it always does).  Life can be like reading a great novel when the last chapter comes while you just want to keep on reading.  There is good news for all who believe: Jesus made it possible for that novel to have a Volume II; and in it there is no two o'clock hour.

Grace and Peace,  Rev Ray
