……he is not here……..


Posted on February 19,2013 under Uncategorized

Our Dad ,  ED CHAPMAN CONRAD died – Feb. 14th…..

As I went to the LORD this a.m. –
It hit me….as it did driving home from Gabe’s after the airport….
Coming down Wrestle Creek Rd.  into Schooler, we have driven
that many, many , many times…but this time.

” Dad is not here…..he is not on the farm, not in his chair, his bed…
the light is on….but he is not here on earth, at all.”

the void goes deep.

Then I see Tug pull in my Dad’s drive as they have done so many, many,
times…and it is more than he can handle…..” he is not here ”

I LOVE  ~  The Tomb…….
I love the power of it, the truth of it, the signature of reality of it…
I LOVE ~  The Tomb…….

The fact they went there :
Matt. 28:6
” He is not here………
He is risen, just as He said ”
vs.8  ” so the women hurried away from the tomb,
              afraid yet FILLED WITH JOY, and ran to tell
the disciples. 9  ” SUDDENLY JESUS MET THEM.”

and so is the TRUTH of JESUS CHRIST
and so is the TRUTH of our Dad + Grandpa….

Dad is not here, because JESUS CHRIST was not there.
Dad is not here, because JESUS CHRIST was not there.

And so there is no one, no one more to thank than JESUS CHRIST
And so there is no one more to worship than JESUS CHRIST
And so there is no one more to THANK than JESUS CHRIST
there is no one more to LIVE FOR….than JESUS CHRIST
there is no one more to tell about…..than JESUS CHRIST…

vs. 10  ” GO and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see Me ”

the foundation gets firmer and firmer…
for our family…….higher and higher……GREATER and GREATER…..

Until the day of JESUS CHRIST……and we are all reunited….
maybe no noodles,  but ALOT OF GLORY….ALOT OF JESUS….

” as for me and my house, we WILL SERVE THE LORD ”
we will proclaim :    HE IS NOT HERE……HE IS NOT….

and for that we are ETERNALLY GRATEFUL….
for The Shedding, the willingness of JESUS CHRIST
to die on the cross…..come out of the grave…….

Thank YOU JESUS for our Mom and Dad’s salvation…
Thank YOU JESUS for their Grandma and Grandpa’s salvation….

We can only stay on the PATH YOU ARE ON……
In YOUR GLORY , in YOUR JOY…to tell the WORLD

“HE is not here; He is risen, just as HE said !”

I don’t know what it’s like yet to lose a parent, but it has to be very hard. I can’t imagine. Praying for you and your family. Love you.

So sorry for your loss and most sorry for the grandkids. You know Dad told me one time “to keep doing what you’re doing and the LORD will bless you.” Well I have so many blessings here on earth….I count myself blessed already. We don’t do what we do to get blessings….it’s all about leading others to Him (our Savior). You’ve had both of your parents for along time. You are blessed too. So….keep doing what you’re doing until the day we come face to face with HIM and the parents we love so much. Love and Hugs, Your SIL. Theresa XOXO

Weeping with you today my friend…..

Janelle and family,

Praying for you at this time, yes as you already know the earthly loss is great, but knowing your dad is with the Lord; reunited with mom what joy. The Lord Bless & keep you and yours. Love you Janelle & family.


Our love and prayers go out to you and your family! Hugs to all….Thank God for our risen Savior, a deposit of things to come. <3 Love, Keith and Kathy

Nice post. I study one thing more challenging on different blogs everyday. It’ll all the time be stimulating to read content material from other writers and apply somewhat one thing from their store. I’d desire to make use of some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a hyperlink on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.
