Before 2016 came to and end two people who I loved went to their heavenly reward.
I had found someone who needs me because one of the people who passed away last year left a void in his life. Even though I can’t replace the the one he loved I can spend to time with him. For the last few weeks I have enjoyed televised football games like never before. In away he has filled a void in my life.
My father has been dead for more then six decades now and it was my father in law who lost his wife in 2016. Strange how now I have a close friend who I can call dad again. Just today we were talking about traveling to see his NFL football team play.
He and I watch old television westerns one after another, go to church together and reflect on the scripture read during mass.
I owe a bit of gratitude to my wife for suggesting I spend time with her father. In a sense I believe that the purpose prayed for has been revealed to me now. God does answer our prayers in ways least expected.
