Moving Tribute to Piper's Father

John Piper has posted his journal entry that recounts the last moments he spent with his father. The elder Piper died just a few days ago in Greenville, SC. I was moved beyond measure to read of this man's love for his father and their common passion for the Lord Jesus Christ. Of course, my mind drifted to the last day I spent with my own father as he was preparing to enter eternal glory. I loved my Dad. You must read this one.

Thanks Jon. I read it . . . very moving. By the way, you're not the only one who reads your blog. I've been meaning to send you a note on one of your posts, will do it as soon as I get time.

Through tears...I think oh how much I want my daughters to be able to say that about me. I hope and pray that I am able to honor God,give him the proper worship, and life sacrifices but have a balanced family life. Great article.
