My Dad

The nursing home my dad has been recuperating in temporarily just called saying they couldn't wake him up this morning and that they're sending him to the hospital. He's been sleeping almost constantly for two days and has lots of things wrong with him. Maybe it's just his time to go. But if he's going to live I want him to live well and not be sick. Prayers are appreciated.

Update: Dad died about an hour or two after I left this post. Thanks for your concern and your prayers. This is one of the last photos taken of him. He was teaching at his little Assembly of God Church, the same one I grew-up in.

God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
we pray in hope for our family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.

In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.

Amen.

Eternal rest,
grant unto Mr Seper and let perpetual light shine upon him
May he rest in peace,

Amen.

Wherever that came from, it's a nice prayer. Thank you Ros. Hope you're doing well. We're burying dad tomorrow, and everyone is fine here.

Blessing friend.

Backatcha Ros. I wish you could have been to the funeral. Everybody has been talking about how nice it was. The preacher did a great job. I also got to see a lot of cousins I haven't seen in ages and met some old friends of dad that I had heard him talk of from youger days but had never met before. We couldn't have asked for more.
