2020 comments:My last day ‘hanging out’ with dad was a beautiful Fall day Sometimes it seems like yesterday and then again so much has happened I have not been able to chat with him about. Marshall, Jason and I used to say the exact same thing about mom’s passing too! Guess it’s a process no matter the loss.
THEN get this……before I saw this FB ‘memory’ this morning, God had unfolded Isaiah 40 to me….. specifically verses 29-31. Myron had more than one eagle on his desk!! God is so big, all-knowing and comforting ….I pray you feel Him today too like I did
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
2019 comments: and the last ‘time’ I spent with dad. He was happy to take pictures of me out working😎….and even told me which cow/calf pair to photo. (which I knew anyways from my Cattle Judging days🐂) Life Lesson #23467: Make sure you take the detours and make the time…..cuz you just don’t know what the days ahead hold.
2018 comments: This was such a great day one year ago. Dad was happy to snap pictures of me playing rancher that day🤣 He even told me which cow/calf pair to photograph😍 He happily announced ‘you can take the girl off the farm but not the farm outta the girl’ when I absolutely had to relieve myself out there in the wide open prairie! The story that probably never got out was that I DID have to bring my muscle (sounds better than weight!) and help balance out a feeder that day💪 As we left the pasture….we stopped on the top of the hill and just paused to look at the vastness of creation. ▪️ Another lesson learned: Slow down. Savor the days and creation…you just don’t know when you are creating ‘the last memories’.
