Fathers Day 2011

19 Jun

I am having trouble getting to sleep tonight, so I thought that I would write.  Today was a hard day – the first Fathers Day without Isaac here.  I appreciated the special treasures from my wife and children.  This afternoon, I reread all of the cards that we received after Isaac’s death.  It was difficult for me to absorb all of the words the first time, since most of the cards came shortly after the incident and I was still finding it difficult to focus.  However, today I was able to take in the words and wept many times.  Thank you very much – you may never know what your encouraging words have meant to us.

We all appreciated the special day on Saturday with our dearest friends.  The words, the Scripture, the prayers, the memories shared, the hugs and the tears were most precious and healing on that very day.  The words from Romans 8 are some of the most beautiful and valuable ever written (in my opinion).  Thank you for sharing those with us.



Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. (Psa 127:3-5)

    Sorry you couldn’t sleep. I thought of you throughout the day. I am sadden that you have to experience this. For me, it is still not real. I can’t seem to shake that feeling. Just know that a day doesn’t go by that I don’t think about you all. I wish I was able to reach out and hug you every day. I sometimes get angry thinking why did this have to happen to such a good family, full of so much love for your children. This is a purpose and some day we will understand. Sending love and hugs to all.
