What is amazing?

It is amazing how the heart can hold so much joy and sorrow at the same time.
My Dad passed away 6 weeks ago, losing the battle against cancer. How he loved the Lord! And still does! And wanted everyone else to know that joy he had. I know he is in Heaven, enjoying all the blessings that are beyond our wildest imaginings. I am so thankful for that. I am so happy he is no longer in pain, or worried about his family. He lived a long time (90 years) and made a difference in many lives. That he is not here with us anymore leaves an ache in our hearts.
Amazing joy that he is with the Lord.
Amazing sorrow that he is not here with us.
And then I remember what sorrow my heavenly Father felt when His son died...How He knows exactly how I feel. It is amazing how His love lights my heart, fading the shadows of sorrow.
Love is so amazing!
