“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” Romans 12:1
Today, as I gaze at the sunrise, I think of a loved one who can no longer marvel at this awesome sight. Nor all other sunrises of mornings ahead.
He had gone to rest forever to bask no more in sunshines nor moonshines, but in the light of God’s eternal light.
We thank the Lord for the blessing of him in our lives. He is a simple and ordinary man. Yet unique, special and funny, even when life slowly slipped away from his frail body, and his memory faded with it.
We thank God for the fine man that he had been, for by him, the standard was raised for his sons and grandsons to follow.
I thank Amang for his sacrifices and hard work in the name of love for family, which never ever diminished his sunny disposition.
For this reason and more, I will remember him with every sunrise, and the happy memory of his smile.
