Circle Of Life



Goodbye Dad!


Life is a circle and my dad has completed his own. He passed away from this realm this morning, free from pain at last.

I appreciate every one who has prayed for me and my family at this difficult time. I would be taking a month off, to prepare for his burial. Thank you so much, I am grateful for your love, God bless you all.

Much love,

Seyi David

    You don’t know me but your words touched me about your dad’s passing. A short bit of words written by myself in the plot synopsis of my written novel……………..,

    with continuous reminders that this is only a temporary stop in our spiritual lives, experienced within the human realm.

  13. Mary C Wilson Andrews says:

    I am grateful that he is no longer in pain, but it is so hard going through this… even though he has passed onto everlasting life! Prayers continued for you and those he left behind. I know when I have had a loved one pass on, I try to write down as many happy memories and capture those in my journal so when I am missing them, the details fill my heart. Blessings and love to you, Mary

    • Seyi sandra says:

    Heartfelt condolences – we should perhaps not focus on the losing when we lose someone we like very much – but focus on all that we were lucky enough to experience together – because the memories all the good experiences them, we still have in our thoughts and we will keep them forever – and all these memories are a gift… 🙂

    Best wishes my friend… 🙂

  20. My deepest condolences, Sandra. May God himself console you during this trying times. 🙂

    The first time I ever visited your blog, you had a wonderful story about your dad and mom. I have never forgotten that post and how it encouraged me that day. I am so sorry for your loss. I know the pain of losing a parent, and I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

  33. Al says:

    I’m sorry Seyi. My thoughts are with you and your family at this time. Know that he is now at peace though. I know that does not help with the pain of the loss, but he is young and agile again now. Hugs to you my friend.

    • Seyi sandra says:

      Thanks so much Al. I know he’s at peace now and all pains are gone. I’m so grateful for your kindness my friend.

  35. Selah says:

    So sorry about your dad. Prayers for you

  36. Makeda says:

    So sorry to hear about your loss. Praying the peace that passes all understanding over your heart and mind. Hugs to you!

  37. “No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

    Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

    -Steve Jobs

    I offer my condolences to you and your family in this time of grief….Maybe you be filled with God’s grace and peace…. Your Dad has passed to a better world… 🙂

    • Seyi sandra says:

      Your comment evoke deep feelings within me, feelings of our mortality; but at the same time, it made me realise the majestic and powerful God that I serve. My dad is safe, and at peace. He lived his life for others, he gave love willingly and served without expecting anything in return. I know I would see him again, not in this realm, in a better one.

      I sincerely appreciate your kind comment and visit. Thank you so much my friend. God bless you!

  38. pattisj says:

  41. stacilys says:

    I’m so sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. I know we must all go through this passage from ‘earthly’ life into eternity. But it’s never easy to let one go. God bless you and your family as you grieve your loss. And may He strengthen you and give you hope for the future.

    • Seyi sandra says:

      Thank you so much, I appreciate your love and kindness. It’s not easy, even though I know he’s safe from harm and enjoying eternal life, my sense of loss still runs deep.

      But all the same, God is good, the same yesterday, today and forever!
