The movie (My daddy is in heaven) if anyone has Netflix, I would SO recommend this movie.. it’s shows you so many ways God works in our life’s, how God uses us in our walk with him. & Why we actually are here, each and everyone of us have a purpose. I cried like a baby through this whole movie... it made me very thankful, I’m so thankful for my husband, my father and mother, my whole entire family.. but I’m more thankful for Jesus, I couldn’t do this life without him, and this movie truly shows that. Thankyou jesus for saving my soul, and thankyou Netflix for this amazing movie.
