Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz has vowed to continue spreading her late father Billy Graham’s message about God through her fight against cancer.
Lotz posted a touching tribute to her father on Wednesday, which would have been his 100th birthday, admitting that she misses him now even more so than when he died in February.
“With a dull ache in my heart, I long to drive up to see him one more time. To tell him about the new journey of faith God has me traveling. To hear him say, ‘I love you, darling,'” she wrote on her website.
“Today, I’m remembering one who was always a farmer at heart. Who loved his dogs and his cat. Who followed the weather patterns almost as closely as he did world events. Who wore old blue jeans, comfortable sweaters, and a baseball cap,” the evangelist continued.
Graham, credited for evangelizing millions around the world, at the end had a “simple faith,” his daughter said.
“He was his message … a simple man who had responded to God’s love by placing his faith in Jesus, receiving the assurance that his sins were forgiven, that he would not perish, but would have everlasting life,” she said.
She wrote that she trusts that her father is now with Jesus, and is “celebrating his first birthday in Heaven.”
“While he may be physically absent and his voice silent, I am confident that his message will continue to reverberate throughout the generations to come. While I’m somewhat bound and set aside, I have not forgotten my recommitment to take up his message like a baton being passed in a relay race,” she vowed.
