Jumping in his young, muscular arms he squeezes me tight and whispers in my ear, “Everything is going to be alright because Daddy’s home!”
Decades later I gaze out the window of a local hospital room as my elderly father lay comatose.
Sacred Promises flood my grieving soul.
“Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In my Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you: for I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” (John 14:1-3 NASV)
Hope shines through the gloom and despair. I squint as the hot tears sting my eyes.
Wrapping my trembling arms around my father’s shrinking frame as he takes his final breath, all of Heaven whispers in my ear. “Everything is going to be alright because Daddy’s home!”
