For weeks after dad’s funeral, I sang this song. I thought I would share it with you. If you have had a difficult summer, know that God is good. Even in our worst moments, there is no denying a cross and a Savior that provided freedom. My dad is experiencing true freedom in Christ right now. So, today I celebrate my dad’s first month in heaven. Time will heal my broken heart, and a dwelling on God’s Word that reminds me of the peace I know through Christ.

I want to be happy and joyful in this season, but it no longer comes naturally. The enemy would have me to wallow in a pit of sorrow, but I will not. I choose joy.
