Dear Girl Whose Dad Is In Heaven On Father's Day

Dear girl whose Dad is in Heaven on Father's Day,

It's that day one day out of the year that you dread. I'm sorry. I know you miss him. I know Father's Day isn't the easiest day for you. When you see other people celebrating with their fathers, it literally aches every bone in your body because you can't celebrate in person with your dad today. I know that today is one of the hardest days for you. I know that yes, the day he passed away is hard, & even his birthday is a hard day as well... But there's something always harder about Father's Day.

Sometimes you think to yourself & wonder, "Why do I even go outside of the house on this day?" Sometimes you also wonder why you even have to pretend to recognize the holiday at all. I know that it's easier to pretend that it's just another ordinary day. Yeah, you're thankful for your dad & everything he did for you while he was still on this earth, but it's just not the same since he's been gone.

I know that your dad was the first man you ever loved. I know that you still consider yourself a "daddy's girl." I know that not a day goes by where you don't think about him. I know that sometimes you think about him & miss him so terribly that it hits you like a truck.

So, to you, girl whose dad is in Heaven on Father's Day, remember this: Your dad loves you. Just because he's not here in earthly fashion on this day, there's still a reason to celebrate. He's in Heaven today, having the best Father's Day ever. You want to know why? Because he's celebrating Father's Day in Heaven with our Heavenly Father. He's no longer in pain. He's no longer suffering. He's worshipping God the Father, in His holy presence. Can you even begin to imagine what your dad is seeing & experiencing today? Just imagine the day when you get to celebrate not only Father's Day again with your dad, but think about celebrating with your Heavenly Father as well. What a glorious day that will be.

So get out of bed. There's a reason to celebrate. Today, thank God for your dad & what your Heavenly Father has done for you.
