    Today, I'm grateful for what happened this morning when I went to bring my car for its 5,000 mile oil change.

    On the way home, I got spiritually happy in my car listening to the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir sing

    God Is Still Doing Great Things



    Last year, this is one of the songs I listened to in my dad's last month of life--December 2013.

    When I was with my father at the Grand Canyon, we thought how great it was. But in December, last year, I wanted my mom to believe God was still doing great things even though our great man was dying.

    My dad left me twice: about a week after my birthday celebration 2012 he went into the hospital. There was significant progress in about late June or so; but, then he had a set back and wasn't going to come home. For my dad not to be in his home was when he first left me. Then he left me on Friday, December 28th. And he left me again when the pastor concluded what he had to say in the mausoleum (and I started crying out loud).

    Keeping me going, keeping my mom going after losing one of the sweet LOVE ROCKs of our family is God doing great things.

    I'm sorry for your loss, Stephen. It's hard to remain positive in the face of it, I'm sure.

    I'm sorry for the loss of your father. Time has a way of healing without letting us forget. Thanks for posting that beautiful song by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir.

    I'm greatful for this:

    Three weeks ago I visited the most amazing place in Argentina with beauty unrivaled. The stillness in silence when the boat's engine went quiet brought on one the greatest feelings of gratitude for life I've experienced.
