Bitter Sweet

Today I decide it was the day to CLEAN. It was one of those days where you dust in places that normally don't put the rag. If you are close to me, you may could guess. Yes, I found a quarter. You see, my dad was known for hiding coins any and every where he went. I have coins all over my house, many people do. Today, I found a quarter in a new place. It made me cry. As a matter of fact, I just had to sit down for a few minutes. Oh so bitter that he is gone. Oh so bitter that I can not hear his voice. I just want to hear his voice. Oh so sweet that he would be laughing over the quarter.

Paul ask the question, "Where, O death is your victory? Where, O death, is thy sting?

For me today it stings.

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Cor. 15:55
