When I saw what laid before me
“Lord,” I cried, “what will You do?”
I thought He would just remove it
But He gently led me through
Without fire there’s no refining
Without pain no relief
Without flood there’s no rescue
Without testing no belief
Through the Fire
Through the Flood
Through the Water
Through the Blood
Through the dry and barren places
Through life’s dense and maddening mazes
Through the pain and through the glory
Through will always tell the story
Of the God whose power and mercy
Will not fail to take us through
Thank you for always being there even when I didn’t want you to be. I really did secretly love that you would come on school trips and seeing you serve at hot lunch was always such a treat, even though I didn’t always show it.
Thank you for waking up early every day to make my lunch. I think I was the only person in Grade 12 that had their dad still send them to school with a lunch box. I miss that though… Your sandwiches and cut up fruit trump anything I eat here.
Thank you for giving me such good advice and understanding the way I am. You’ve always encouraged to not settle in every aspect of my life and I’m sorry I let you down so many times. I’m still trying though and I know you won’t give up on me.
We’ve always had a good system together, even from the beginning. You may have been blind at first but you were still able to feed and dress me. We made it work.
Thank you for being my rock and my example of how a man should be. Thank you for always inspiring me and giving me insight like only a daddy could.
Te amo muito papi.
