December 11

December 11, 2017

Today is December 11…December 11, 2011, I received an incredible gift. My dad had been in the hospital several days and was not improving, in fact, he was dying. But not that day, it was his birthday.

The family had gathered around him hoping to cheer him up and make him feel better through giving a few gifts and celebrating his life. However, it didn’t happen that way…instead, God gave us a gift.

My dad became joyous and strong. He laughed and enjoyed our company.  He was the dad I remember as a kid, he was strengthened that day by God to bless us and remind us that He (God) is the God of the living, not the dead.  God gave us a gift that day…we truly experienced our dad in his new life. It was a gift I will never forget.

One, we celebrated a wonderful day with my dad, his last birthday. Two, we experienced a life changed by Jesus Christ, there was evidence in my dad’s life and death.  What a day, what a gift… “I come that you may have life.”
