Its a wonderful wednesday morning. I praise God for a new life, though I may not have everything in this life but Im thankful for all the blessings that He has poured, I may not have everything I want but I have enough to survive.There are so many reasons to smile, but this morning I had my reason to weep. I thought I have over grown the feeling, but I was never brave when it comes to matter that concerns fathers. Yes, I cried this morning. I saw rose rendon on facebook and I how I love the picture of her and her father. I miss my father. I miss him so much. I ended up weeping. I wept hard. I never had the chance to have a picture with him and as far as I can remember we never had a family picture when he was around. My heart aches. Its aching more than the first broken heart I once had, its painful. Im embracing the pain. Its always this way, I end up getting involved with my emotions. Its already 3: 25pm and im always teary eyed since this morning when that thought comes to mind. I just try to think of happy thoughts to chase my tears away, but the tears just try to remind me that its alright to cry. Crying can be a good exercise for the heart. Im not alone. There are lots of fatherless children in the world but cant I help but reveal the melancholic side of me, it does happen. Im just glad even though I no longer have a physical father have my Father up there who has lavished me with so much love and care, who died for my sins and save my from eternal damnation, my first love love, Jesus Christ. Its ok to weep once in a while. Its ok to cry. And to those children who have their fathers with them, pray for your fathers, for salvation, for good health and for protection, always. Treasure each moment together.

Crying is a good release of all the pent up emotions trapped deep down withinIt's never a sin to cry, rite? Haha!~In fact I should say it takes great courage to do so as some are to afraid to show their true feelings, in fact even to be true to themselves. But of course, one needs to be wise as well to choose the time to let it happen at times, especially not in front of those who will use it as an advantage against usWell, many might still have their biological father around, well but who's never around, haha!~So I guess the orphan spirit is very much prevalent but like you said, thank God we have a Father who always loves us no matter what ;)

hello, I understand how'd you feel,as i love my parents too much and i was raised by my grandparents with so much love (overflowing love from my loved ones) That's too sad that you never had a chance to have a family picture with your dad when he is around. but,you can always cherish the moments that you've shared with your dad and it will always remain forever in your memories. Just keep smiling and don't take life at each sad side...look at the brighter side. Life is too short,don't waste with sad memories

As you've said, it's okay to cry sometimes. We cannot help but we become emotional when we try to remember the loss of a loved one. I too lost my dad and in fact also my mom when i was 13. I am the youngest among the five children and i was the closest to my dad. I was a daddy's girl and i always showed them how much i care. In fact whenever i got the chance to, i slept beside them and i would hug my dad while sleeping. I couldn't sleep well without my dad beside me. I missed those moments sometimes where i can just hug my dad and feel safe in his arms and sometimes i would weep too thinking about those times. But like you, i am also thankful that i was able to survive and live well not having my parents around me. Now i have my own family and i am teaching my son how to be appreciative of us.
