God's Comfort and a Thank You

Friday, April 20, 2012

My Mom passed away yesterday and I want to take a moment in this hectic time to thank you for all of the wonderful thoughts and messages I have received from you, my dear friends.

I came across this and wanted to post it, I guess more for me than for anybody. Some of you may have read it before and I thought it was so touching.

By Barbara Sanders:

As a child, we always wanted surprises, whether it was a piece of candy, a little toy from the store, or perhaps a trip to our grandmother's. It doesn't take too much to make a child happy. But, as we grow older, the cost of the surprises seem to be more and more. It comes to the point most surprises don't excite us anymore. The flowers lose their smell, and they become limp, after a few days. The candy is never the right kind of chocolate. The clothes never fit. And, who gets cards anymore? BUT 'Daddy' has endless surprises. He wants you to come to Him, abide in Him, and the surprises are yours for the asking. He loves you more than anyone could ever love you. His tenderness goes beyond that we can show to each other. He says come sit with me, love me with a never-ending love, and I will give you your dreams, and be with you always. What better surprise, than to have Him show up when you most need comforting!

----------------------------

Thank you again for all your thoughts, prayers and wishes. They mean so much to me. Hug your loved ones always.

Bob.
