fathers

“A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.” Billy Graham

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord. Ephesians 6:4

death

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. Unknown

The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18

The grave itself is but a covered bridge,Leading from light to light, through a brief darkness! Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

strength

Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go. Hermann Hesse

conquer

To conquer frustration, one must remain intensely focused on the outcome, not the obstacles.”– T.F. Hodge

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Risen

The devil, darkness, and death may swagger and boast, the pangs of life will sting for a while longer, but don’t worry; the forces of evil are breathing their last. Not to worry…He’s risen!
– Charles R. Swindoll

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
– Romans 6:8-11

Victory

Nothing but encouragement can come to us as we dwell upon the faithful dealing of our Heavenly Father in centuries gone by. Faith in God has not saved people from hardships and trials, but it has enabled them to bear tribulations courageously and to emerge victoriously.” Lee Roberson

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. I Corinthians 13:57
