1 Corinthians 8:6 (NIV) Yet for us there is but one God, the Father,
from whom all things came and for whom we live;
and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ,
through whom all things came and through whom we live.
I ponder the scriptures in Corinthians and Isaiah. I know there is one God, and He is our Father. However, my thoughts wander to my earthly Father that is now in Heaven. Daddy was a wonderful example of what our Heavenly Father is.
He loved the land, tilled the soil, raised crops, enjoyed his friends and loved to fish. Daddy loved the Lord, loved his wife, loved his children and grandchildren – in that order!
He teased us and brought joy and laughter into our lives. He worked in tandem with God to mold me into the person I am today. It is easy for me to love the Lord because He gave me an example in an earthly father to love.
God sent me a husband who has the same godly tributes. He constantly works to make our lives better. He lovingly tries to mold and give guidance to our sons, grandchildren, my sister and niece. He took over the legacy of overseeing the farm that Daddy and our family love so much.
I miss my Daddy now as I think about our life. I am so thankful God gave me Norm to spend time with here on earth. It gives me comfort to know my Heavenly Father is always with me and will never leave me. It is my mistake when I don’t pause to start the day with Him and acknowledge His presence.
I have a feeling Daddy and God are both working in tandem – with Norm as an earthly helper. It is a big job keeping an eye on the Tramba clan. Norm turns 75 this week. I am truly blessed to have had him in my life for forty-three years.
Isaiah 64:8 (NIV)
Yet you, LORD, are our Father.
We are the clay, you are the potter;
we are all the work of Your hand.
