You may not know this but I have been trying to post on the 1st and 15th of each month. There have been a few days when I missed that mark but for the most part, it has been steady. For October 15th, I was planning remembering my dad. He passed away on the 13th. With the world change I was going through and my computer being broken for a while, I am just getting to the post today. So without further delay…
My dad, Roger Allan Sorbo, was an awesome man. I would need many, many more “two minutes with Tim” to tell all there is to tell about him. I don’t but I can summarize. Here goes:
He was the piano man. With 12 years of classical lessons, my dad could play any song in any style. Give him a piano and let him roll! It was amazing how the music of his life was captured in only 88 keys! One of his favorite things in life was to play the piano. They must have pianos in heaven!?!?!? His music is on CD so if you want to hear it, contact me.
He was the practical man. My dad was a doctor. He had his PhD in Nuclear Chemistry. One does not get such a degree without being highly pragmatic! He drove the car with the best gas mileage. He would multi-task to save time. When we would work in the garden, we would talk about science stuff. So logical and analytical was my dad. We even joked that he didn’t have feelings because he was so practical.
He was the playing man. My dad was a gamer before it was popular. Because of his intelligence it was so hard to ever beat him. We could play Boggle until 2:00 in the morning! He also played golf and softball. My dad loved to play games. It must be genetic because I love to play games as well.
But the my dad was also a pure man. He lived his life for Jesus. At a young age, my dad gave his heart to the Lord. His sins were washed away. Despite having many difficulties later in life, his attitude always reflected his salvation. God saved him. And he knew it. My dad would always remind me that God is in control of his life so why worry. Just get up and do the right thing.
So as I think about my dad, I am sad. He always reviewed each blog before I posted it. Not this one though. Bummer, this one will be a favorite of mine.
Before I go, can I ask you a question? Is God in control of your life?
