That hole is still there, but the scar is a sure sign of healing. I have been able to rejoice in the work the Lord has been able to do in me and through me because of this tragedy... I would love to be able to go back and undo it, but even so, I can honestly and boldly say the God through his unbounded mercy, grace and love has returned my joy... Yes I still have my moments, but I have adjusted to the new normal and I do everything I can to put Him first. To all of you who are brothers and sisters in this group, I pray you will let the Lord work on you and through you too to give you back your joy. It is a different joy and knowing that it is only temporary until we are rejoined with our beloved son and The Son, it is a good earthly joy.
God bless you all.
Bless you Sir, I enjoy your post. I did not know of your loss. The new normal as you stated is hard for folks to understand. That's what my wife and I talk about often. God has been good to us and for us.
Bless each and every parent that has lost a child on TBH and around the world.
Again, I thank you SWS for all your encouragement and prayers offered.

Default Remembering some of the "special" TBH Fathers on Father's day

My annual bump of this thread. Happy Fatherís Day to all the dads out there.

Thereís also a special group of guys that mean a lot to me around here. Wish we would have taken a group photo at Nanza this year since there were a lot of us there.
I guess just my ugly mug and SaltwaterSlick (Charlie) will have to suffice.

I can't exspress how my heart breaks for the Dad's that have lost one their children. Most of these Dads have sent me prayers in recent weeks. Prayers that come form a diffrent place that most can't comprehend. I thank each one of you from the bottom of my heart and will pray for each of you.

Always a tough read y'all. We lost my little sister a couple of years ago, and it feels like i saw my dad age several years in just a few month's time.
All of y'all make me appreciate my dad so much. Hope each of you have a blessed day.

Thanks Joel! And all the other Dads. I continue to pray for all. Shortly, I'll be on my way to see my second child's family, along with my Dad and Mother. Hopefully, my youngest child will be there too. May the Lord bless all of you.

Happy fathers Day y,all. It’s been almost 5 years...
What I think of is how many more have been inducted into this club since last year. Our world is a messed up place right now. No one but Satan could walk into a school and start killing children. Only one that fix this is Jesus. We’ve got to put God back into our schools and take Satan out!! My heart breaks for them. Praise be to God for covering Clay and though tragic, earthly healing through The Master’s Hand saved him for great Works. A special Happy Father’s Dat to you Hoggayer!

I remember when your son passed Toolman...still so sorry my friend.
Just keep moving forward and putting one foot in front of the other sir. Time eventually heals a big portion of the pain but of course the heart always hurts. God has seen me through the roughest of time since my sonís death. Iíve just learned to accept that the new normal includes a very bruised heart.

God bless you guys!

X2. I can't imagine the loss of a child, but ya'lls testimonies definitely make me want to forget the small stuff and give mine an extra hug tomorrow. We are all but a fleeting moment in time, tomorrow is never promised to any of us.
