See Ya Later

On Wednesday I said “See ya later” for the last time to my Dad. I loved him. He was a quirky, remarkable man in plain clothes. He was a gift from God to me and our family. In my sadness I stand on the One Sure Foundation. All is well.

“Lord, You are my portion and my cup of blessing; You hold my future. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. I will praise the Lord who counsels me — even at night my conscience instructs me. I keep the Lord in mind always. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoices; my body also rests securely. For You will not abandon me to Sheol; You will not allow Your Faithful One to see decay. You reveal the path of life to me; in Your presence is abundant joy; in Your right hand are eternal pleasures.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭16:5-11‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
