Happy Birthday Dad!

dad at 25Alton Winfield Werner

Born on earth: January 3, 1915
Arrived in heaven: February 15, 1997

Wow! It is crazy to think but today is my dad’s 100th birthday! He is not here for me to share this birthday wish but I am sure that in heaven there is an awareness of this day. In memory of dad and as an expression of love from his family, I share a few pictures.

Before we know it, we too will be gone from the earthly realm.  Let’s live with eternity in full view!

Dad, I long for the day that we will be with you and mom in your heavenly home.  Glory to our Great God and Savior Jesus Christ!

John 14: 1-6  “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.  In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.  If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.  And you know the way where I am going.”  Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?”  Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
