Loving Hurts

Monday, February 03, 2014

Today I am 70 years old. It is not only my birthday it is the anniversary of my beloved Dad's death. Even though it has been almost fifty years it has not diminished the love I have for him. Time does ease the pain of loss but it never really goes away. I think of our dear Lord loving us so much as to die for us and yet we let Him down again and again. His love is without measure, how bless are we for that. I pray as I grow older I grow wiser in my love for Him keeping Him forever close to my heart. May God be forever praise!

    Pat, nicely said. I like you miss my parents everyday. I treasurer so many memories of things we did and places we went. One of the very last trip with my parents was to Disneyland with my parents and daughters. I lost my Mother 25 years ago, Dad 17 years ago. God Bless you Pat and hoping you had a Wonderful Birthday. I know you Dad was looking down upon you on that day.

    It'll be 19 years next month since I lost my Dad & I still miss him. Thankfully I still have my Mum but as she will be 90 this May obviously time with her will now be limited so we need to cherish the time we have.
    I hope you had a wonderful 70th birthday, did you do anything exciting?
    Loads of love to you my wonderful Sparkfriend.

    Amen. Beautifully said. You are right love does hurt. The memory of those who we loved dearly goes with us. Praise God for Jesus, the lover of our souls.

    I lost my dad 8 years ago, it seems it was only yesterday I saw his smile. Time passes but you are right, the loss never goes away.
    It's good to have memories that warm the heart.
    I hope you had a good day!
