It's good to know you're out there!

I know almost everyone out there has lost someone they've loved, but not everyone has experienced it in the way we have. A child who loses a parent halfway across this hectic highway of life is forced to grow up too fast. It is very hard to move on when you are doing things without them since you always pictured doing such things with them. We find ourself wishing for a rewind button, but knowing we'll never get one. And we are always thinking back, even when we think we should be over it. But you don't get over it, do you? It's always right there. You just learn to cope with it. I have found writing helps me to see things and release things that I can't always bear having on my mind, and it looks like you have experienced that as well. Thanks for your comments on My Story. You should check out my other stuff. One thing I did want to add though is perhaps you will indeed see your dad again. Have you thought about that? The Bible holds out a promise of a resurrection, and although most do not know it, that resurrection is to everlasting life on a paradise earth just as God purposed in the beginning. Why else would Jesus sacrifice his life for us? He came to earth to give mankind a hope and to show on a small scale what he will soon do for all deserving ones. His perfect life was an equal ransom to what Adam's was worth. And even though, "through Adam sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men" (Romans 5:12), we have God's word that "the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23).  "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28,29). Yes, what a reality this will be, and a joyous occasion at that!

It probably would be easier in some ways if there was some warning and time to get used to the idea, say goodbye, etc.  Any change is easier with some time to get used to it.  I've been talking a lot to my kid about moving, even though it's at least 6 months away.  I think it's letting him get used to the idea, worry about missing his friends, look forward to a new adventure, etc.  I can see that's going to make it easier for him already than if he just woke up one day and I told him we are going to live in a new place now.

Jemmie
 The question "Why?" is the one that is the hardest to bear. Hang in there Jemmie, there are lots of people who love you and are keeping you in their prayers.
