This is a continuation of my previous post about my Dad. As time passed Dad became sicker and sicker. I talked to Him regularly on the phone and comforted him on his journey. I had a gift shop in Garden Grove, Ca. and Dad was now in Tucson, Arizona. I remained very strong as I talked to Dad, but when off the phone I would collapse in tears. I could not even imagine loosing my Dad. I had lost my mom at a young age, and as a result of that I clung to my Dad through thick and thin. It was killing me to not get there when he was really sick. I had gone there many times but for what ever reason, I couldn’t get away from the shop at this time. Then the day came when I was at the shop and I got a call from the hospice he was in, that if I wanted to see my dad, I better come now. He was suddenly failing fast. We just closed the shop, and the next morning at the break of day headed to Arizona. My husband and I, me crying and he comforting me. We had reached the desert and as we drove I looked out the window to my right and there was a rainbow in the sky. Not one cloud, no rain just this rainbow. I had Jerry look, and we both were amazed. Suddenly as we drove a thought rushed through my head and I said Jerry do you think that rainbow is the Lord trying to get my attention? We prayed and I heard the still small voice of the Lord saying let Him go. I asked Jerry ,do you think the Lord wants to take Dad right now? He calmly said I think so. I now prayed and told the Lord to take my Daddy, I didn’t want him to suffer anymore. I asked Jerry what time it was, and he said. “7:30am”. We drove on, but I had a strange new peace. I felt like I was going to be o.k. Prior to that, I just couldn’t even think of it without my heart breaking. We finally arrived in Tucson, about 6 hours later. My Jerry said let me go in first, fearing that I would collapse if faced with bad news. He came out a few minutes later and said “your Dad went to be with the Lord”. I asked what time, and he replied,”7:30am”The Lord promised us comfort, and care, that he would never leave or forsake us, and truly he was there for me with the Revelation through the rainbow. The rainbow in the photo is one in Kauai, Hawaii.
My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
