We went morning mass today to pray for your soul on this, your '9th Death Anniversary' (from the morning of 2003 Oct 05, Sunday).
We make it a point to pray for you soul often, if not daily... as I think of you.
Going for morning mass has never been easy for me, but we did it this morning just for you.
As the Lector read out the psalm, I noticed it had the exact same lyrics of a familiar song which I have included in this blog post.
Needless to say, we think of you often... especially when something needs fixing in the home... and there's always something to fix at home.
Now, we don't repair the fans that are faulty... we throw them away and get new ones... please don't frown on us, we're aren't as talented as you were in this area.
Thank-you for being a wonderful and loving husband to mum as well as such a father to sis & me... our spouses... and your grand-children.
We miss you. I miss you.
Your loving Son, always.

O God, you search me out
Oh God, You Search Me and You Know Me
~ by Bernadette Farrell
~ Lyrics of Psalm 139
1. O God, You search me and You know me.
All my thoughts lie open to Your gaze.
When I walk or lie down You are before me:
Ever the maker and keeper of my days.
2. You know my resting and my rising.
You discern my purpose from afar,
And with love everlasting You besiege me:
In evry moment of life or death, You are.
3. Before a word is on my tongue, Lord,
You have known its meaning through and through.
You are with me beyond my understanding:
God of my present, my past and future, too.
4. Although Your Spirit is upon me,
Still I search for shelter from Your light.
There is nowhere on earth I can escape You:
Even the darkness is radiant in Your sight.
5. For You created me and shaped me,
Gave me life within my mothers womb.
For the wonder of who I am, I praise You:
Safe in Your hands, all creation is made new.
Psalm 139: 1 - 3, 7 - 10, 13 - 14
01 ~ O LORD, thou hast searched me and known me!
02 ~ Thou knowest when I sit down and when I rise up; thou discernest my thoughts from afar.
03 ~ Thou searchest out my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
07 ~ Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
08 ~ If I ascend to heaven, thou art there! If I make my bed in Sheol, thou art there!
09 ~ If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 ~ even there thy hand shall lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
13 ~ For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 ~ I praise thee, for thou art fearful and wonderful. Wonderful are thy works! Thou knowest me right well;
