Dad comes through with perspective, as always.

17 May

This is what my dad said in regards to my earlier post here.  Read the comment first, or watch the video post first.  Either way.  We lost Grandpa Rathert 6 years ago today.  He was a great man with moral values and impeccable character.  I know my dad thinks of him often as he looks across the patch from his porch to what used to be his parents’ side yard.  Having family so close is an immeasurable blessing.  I’m so blessed to have my family and Jarrod’s family so close as well.  Grandpa is missed and not forgotten, but we all know we will see him again.  And there is peace in that realization.  Thanks dad for putting such a wonderful perspective on that video.  How true your words are.

This is the way it will be when our heavenly Father comes for each one of us. One moment we will be living our lives, and the next moment we will run to his arms. We will hold on tightly, but we will be the ones being held. And the joy will produce a free flow of unstoppable tears each of which he will wipe away until we never, never cry again. It was coincidental that I viewed this on the anniversary of the day that Grandpa Rathert was gathered into the arms of his heavenly Father. I will probably act more like the dog than the people.
