john-williamsThe day after my book launch on August 28 my dad, John Williams, passed away. Earlier that week he was so excited about the book and wanted to hear about every detail of the launch.  At the launch party, I asked a friend to select a poem from Eyewitness to a Savior and she chose Crossing Over which celebrated the resurrection.  As I traveled on the plane to North Carolina that poem and the scripture embedded in it offered me such comfort. During the past six weeks we celebrated dad’s life,  supported mom through this difficult transition and took care of my father-in-law, John Gainor, who was gravely ill. Through it all, the Lord provided a reserve of strength, comfort, and reassurance that I needed so desperately. What should have been my darkest days were filled with hope, gratitude and peace. Every day I offer Him praise for the miraculous healing of John Sr. as well as dad who is no longer suffering and confined to a wheelchair but singing God’s praises in that beautiful baritone voice. I know I can face anything with my abiding Lord at my side.
