Father's Day

Always a difficult day for me, hard to stand in front of the Father's Day cards and not be able to buy just the right one.  As time goes by, it becomes more clear than before, that there may have never been a card made to describe just how wonderful he was.
So I will think of him today, as I always did . 

 We Thought Of You Today
 We thought of you today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow, too.
We think of you in silence
And make no outward show.
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know.
Remembering you is easy,
We do it everyday.

It's the heartache of losing you
That will never go away

In Loving Memory Of
My Sweet Dad ~ Ray Matthis  
Who Rested in the Arms of Jesus


  1. I love this, Debi. My dad has been gone since l994, and I'll never stop missing him until I see him again.


  2. Your dad was obviously a very special man, Debi, and I know you miss him dearly.

    Isn't it wonderful though that we have our vivid memories of loved ones to tide us over until we get to see them again in heaven? I believe that's a blessing that our loving God gives us to hold us over during this life.

    Hang onto those memories, girl. Your dad lives on in each of you!

  3. Oh, that is perfect for my daddy too! He died very suddenly in 1996, 6 months after my husband and I married. I miss him every day!
