Prayer for my father

Dear God,

hear this prayer,

I now pray for my dad.

Thank you for his life,

for without him, I wouldn’t exist.

Thank you for the memories,

when he cared for me and held me.

Thank you for the lessons,

learned by his examples and his mistakes.

Oh Father God,

Bless my dad

Bless his soul.

And in his failures, let me forgive him,

And love him, as you love us.

Through the spirit, heal the wounds between us.

Please guide his soul

to be with you now in heaven.

You are the father to us all.

Spread out your mercy,

Over all fathers, daughters and sons.

For the glory of your son,

Jesus Christ.

In His holy name,



gone too soon…

While the rest of the world celebrates, I remain quietly observing, feeling all emotions, trying to rise above the bitterness and sadness of our lost. The way i see life will never be the same again…

The sudden passing of my only brother – Vannie, changed the way I see life. It is much shorter than I thought, it gives us blows that sometimes knock us out to the ground. His death was so heartbreaking. He was so young, full of life, a music lover and a good singer. As his big sister I felt that I should have spent more time with him, but having my own family changed my focus and then it’s too late… I realized that in this finite life, we have our family, my daughter who I now embrace much tighter & longer. I began playing with her again, spending time with my family as much as I can. The need to see or talk to them is now more profound. In this finite life we tend to waste the chances of sharing a life with and for others. That’s why God created Eve for Adam, sharing is the key and loving is the way of life.
