Thank you for your words of compassion at the death of my father, Weldon Warnock. Many of you have experienced the death of a parent, so you know the odd feeling, the effort made to remember old times and hear their voice. You also know the comfort that can be found in believing that our REDEEMER LIVES and ETERNAL LIFE HE GIVES.
My Dad was not perfect. He was forgiven. His memory of scripture was unbelievable.
In his final hours he said..."Hope...hope...hope...hope." I don't know what was going on in his mind or spirit at that time, but I find great comfort in those final words. He had the hope of heaven.
I have not been on pleo for several months. I've been mainly on Facebook and have enjoyed that. I've connected with so many from the past.
Since my last entry...my Dad has had a downward spiral with his health. He is now in long term care...on the same floor as my Mom, just in different rooms. These are difficult days.
On a lighter note...Wilson's new book is out and having wonderful response and reviews. The book is called "A Life Lost...and Found"...a Journey of Hope and Healing Through Tragedy. Please visit www.alifelostandfound.org for a complete review.
Luke is now a freshman in high school...has become an avid golfer.
Naturally I am still enjoying the "Life of Nana".
I hope your journey today will be filled with hope and joy!
This week our adult class in VBS is studying this title under the teaching of Lowell Sallee. Wow...so practical...makes you think...brings you to your knees...touches your heart.
Tonight was about love. Can't get to heaven if I don't love my brethren. Can't get to heaven if I am not kind. Love never fails...people do.
Ever lost perspective? You know...the ability to see things for what they really are. I have done that before. I forgot reasons for why things were done the way they were....decisions made...and focused on what I wanted.
Perspective helps you realize just what life is all about. It strengthens your insight and enables you to persevere through rough times. If you lose it...judgement becomes shaded and shallow. Loss of it makes compromise so much easier.
Have been out of town for the past week. It was a difficult week for reasons that I cannot explain. But...leave it to say that I am glad to be home where I feel wanted and comfortable.
