Hope Does Not Disappoint

RejoiceInSufferings

Something special for my Dad today — sharing one of his favorite verses — as he embarks on a year of Leukine therapy to fight metastasized melanoma.

My Dad is a man of deep compassion
who has seen great suffering.

He understands endurance,
and soldiers on with quiet strength

because this is not his home.

He has glimpsed eternity
and tasted of hope

and knows they do not disappoint.

This, my Friends, is his strength —
an abiding faith in His Father,

the one true God.
