embrace the camera: march 29/missing dad

March 29, 2012

five months seems like a long time for some things, but when you’re grieving the loss of someone you love, time has no limits.

 

yesterday marked the five-month anniversary of my dad going home to be with Jesus.

 

in some ways, it seems like he’s been gone for much longer, yet on the other hand, it seems like it was just yesterday that i held his hand and said good-bye.

 

i know it will eventually get easier, and the pain will lessen, but for now it’s still very real.

 

i will say that though i miss dad like crazy, i am so happy for him that he gets to be with Jesus…..he’s loved Jesus with all of his heart and he lived his life with a heavenly perspective. i’m so proud to be his daughter and i always will be, no matter how long he’s been gone.

 

 

for today’s embrace the camera, i would like to share an old photo of me with my dad. this was taken at my wedding reception. i’m so thankful that my dad was healthy and able to share in the joy of marrying my husband.
