I went to church this morning even though I did not feel like going. I'm still coughing and hacking around. I know people do not like to be around other people who are coughing and sick.
Since my job is running the video and I sit away from most folks up in the balcony I went ahead and did my duty today.
Mary stayed home sick and watched the Live Streaming Services that I was broadcasting. She seemed to enjoy the services from afar.
This afternoon I received a call from Delton. He said that he had checked daddy into the hospital in Benton.
Mary and I dropped by from a few minutes. Daddy looked very poorly and was breathing hard.
We went on to church so I could attend to my video duties. After church we went back to the hospital.
I got to Daddy's bedside about 8:30 p.m. I read Psalm 100 and Psalm 23 to him. I spent a few minutes talking to him. I told him how much I loved him and appreciated the way he and momma raised me. I prayed with him. By 9:00 p.m. his breathing quit and he was gone.
I really thought that we were there for the night, but God in His mercy took him home. I am so very thankful for those few minutes that I had with my daddy before God took him home to be with my mother.
We know that daddy was saved and is now in heaven. What a great God to provide so great a Salvation.
