Although it Hurts… 

I just recently lost my father to cancer and it hurts in ways you cannot imagine. Unless you yourself have experienced losing a parent, you cannot even begin to comprehend the insurmountable pain it causes. For me, my whole world stopped the day my father passed. Nothing else mattered at that moment and I could not care less about anything else. All I wanted or cared about was having my father back…

After a couple of hours had passed and I was able to calm myself down, I began to feel at peace again. Why? Because I realized that although my father had passed on, he was now resting in peace. Adding to that, he passed away peacefully. This was not a “good-bye” to my beloved father. It was more of a “see you later because I know that I will be able to welcome him back in the Resurrection. That is what I believe in and that is what brings me comfort.

I am longing for the day when I will see my father young, vibrant and healthy again! Sulking in my sorrows is not what my father would have wanted nor is it something I was raised to do. I come from a family where our greatest strengths come from some of the most depressing moments and trials. Not only that, we have a strong belief and faith in the Resurrection hope. If you thought I was determined before, my level of determination has just been amplified times ten! I’m going to do great with my first novel series The Chronicles of Neffie and I cannot wait to tell my father all about it when the Resurrection comes.

I have one seal already on the cover as a five star read and I cannot wait to add a few more. This is only the beginning. Stay tuned for your opportunity to receive an advanced review copy before it’s release in February 2018.

Until next time…

  1. Really sorry to hear about your father, I lost mine to a massive heart attack, the lost was sudden and he was only sick for 6 days and was gone. I too look forward to the resurrection, because of him bringing the truth to our home we have a bright future.
