We walked down the street, my left hand braced by he’s right as the feeling of security was certain to me. I would content myself with allowing him to lead as I followed, not necessarily knowing where we were heading to or why we moved that direction. He would tell me things and I would listen, many times not even knowing what he was talking about, but I’d listen anyways. Some of the best times I can ever remember in my few years spent so far in life are times spent with him, strolling, in the farm and in church.
It feels just like yesterday, it’s been nineteen years since he departed this life on earth and I miss him. You can imagine how young I was then (yea, you are free to imagine…lol), but I still feel the impact of his fatherly love on me now. He was really a great man and a wonderful dad. I didn’t have the time to have celebrated him on a day like this when he was on earth, but right now even as he is with the Angels and Saints in the heavens I celebrate him.
“CELESTINE N. EGWUMBA” I bless God for making you the man whom he gave the responsibility of bringing me to life. As you smile at me from the heavens, I can only tell you “I Love you”. Be sure that I will hold on to the virtues and the faith you introduced to me and most importantly, after my life on earth I will join you in the company of the Saints and Angels to stand in the Lords presence, raising our voices to worship him for ever and ever… Amen.
Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers here on blogsvile.
