Time to say Good Bye

Sunday evening on February 3th after church service we went to the hospital to check my father in law. He has been in hospice care for almost 2 weeks. At 8 ish, we thought he already with the LORD, we checked and he was still with us. My husband and I decided to go get something to eat downstair at 8: 20 ish and let the nurse know and left my father in law by himself in the room.
Around 8:50 we went back up stair and my husband got a phone call from one of my brother in law that my father in-law already went to be with the Lord around 8:40.

We were crying and sad although we knew this time will come but when you face the reality then you realized how hard it is. I have lost my parents when I was in my early age and had experience with losing someone that you love and care so dearly. My husband and family this is the first time they experience losing someone they love.

Praise God , most of my husband family knew where my father in law will be and we all have the assurance of that hope. One day we will see him again in heaven with Jesus.

We had beautiful funeral services on February 8th in honor of my father in-law life. We had my husband basket ball coach from their high school in Christian School to deliver the message. Friends and families come to give us comfort and care. Thank you God for all the care, kindness and love you show us through them.

We will missed my father in-law but we know he is in the best place now, no more sorrow, no more pain !!!

One thing I remember from my father in-law at our wedding was his speech about JOY : Jesus first, Other second and Yourself  last !! What a wonderful message   !! We all say Good Bye for now until we meet again in a glorious moment with our Lord Jesus ! We all Love You and will miss you !!

A Time for Everything : To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. ( Ecclesiastes 3 :1-8)
