We are dust

Lately, I've been missing my father a lot. I miss his laughter, grin, stories and him karaoke singing, commenting on the news and giving a pat and hug… my tears now as I type these words flow especially now that I'm playing one of his favorite songs, “Mighty to Save”. Last week I dreamt about him as if we're just enjoying an ordinary day. I feel down whenever I long for him but I thank the Lord for making me remember that this is just temporary... sooner and later I'll meet my father again and so is my Father in Heaven.

It’s really true that we should give all our love to all people close to us and make them feel special most of the time. Never leave your home without saying “I Love You” to your parents and siblings and be as good as you can be as a child to them. Each of us grows up and all our loud moments (e.g. fighting) with them will be lessen and they will let us decide on our own. So appreciate their love and compassion for us all the time - for the Lord made no mistakes on choosing our families. And if ever you’re from a family who does not treat you good, please remember that Jesus loves you; He was crucified and died for you as well. He is with you.

Everything in this earth will pass away: we came from dust and so our bodies will go back to dust eventually. But Praise the Lord for He has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all (Psalm 103:19). And there He will wipe every tear from our eyes… no more death' or mourning or crying or pain – this is His promise (Revelation 21:4).
