Party on!

Today is the anniversary of my dad's death...and I'm fine, better than fine...actually full of joy! Why are you such a flower of joy, one might ask. Well, because God is sovereign, that's why. God didn't just know the day of my dad's death, he orchestrated it. And there is one thing I know for sure... He is good. My dad's death glorifies God, just like everything else in the world. So I am rejoicing today, in that the Lord used my dad's death for His glory.
Take note, this is not me saying what one is suppose to say. This is genuinely how I feel. Today I celebrate!
