In these days leading up to my daddy’s last day. I want to share his words to us, at least my take on his words. The ones he would have said had he been able to speak that day. Three years before he died, my dad asked me to gather three songs for him. He said I would know why one day. And I do know. These are his songs and why I believe he chose them.
My daddy wanted us to know the hope. Hope of a future. Hope of the freedom from the pain and struggles of this life. The burdens we carry. Hope in the knowing that He is now walking with Jesus.
When I Get Where I Am Going, Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton
When I get where I’m going, there’ll be only happy tears. I will shed the sins and struggles, I have carried all these years. And I’ll leave my heart wide open, I will love and have no fear. Yeah, when I get where I’m going… don’t cry for me down here.”
