My Dad passed away at 2:29 a.m. on Saturday, October 18th. He and Mom had been married for over 52 years, and I consider myself extremely blessed to have learned from his example as a husband and father.

He has exchanged a failing body that was reduced to frailty by cancer, for the new, perfected body promised to us by our Messiah. Dad's life verse was 2 Corinthians 5:17:

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." (NKJV)

Dad's old body has passed away, and he is truly a new creation now.

Friday Fiction will be back on October 31st.

Hoomi, I'm so sorry for your loss. Truly. Our family has had three major losses in the last two years, and I know the grieving that goes along with it. I'll be praying for you, especially through the holidays, and I'm so thankful you shared this. Huge hugs in the Lord, LauraLee
