I was very nervous about the way I would sound, look, etc., but when we got up there to sing, all I could see or think about was the precious woman we were usually standing before while singing this beautiful song. About two words into the song, tears started flooding down my face, and I could see all of her family start reaching for their handkerchiefs.
This beautiful service has already got me looking for the beauty in my life, like "Mrs.J" did. Even though she was disabled by the disease the whole time I knew her, I could always see the life and warmth in her eyes, and her love always showed the faith she had in God.
I challenge you to live your life like she did- happily, lovingly, hopefully, and faithfully.
Lord prepare me.
To be a sanctuary,
pure and holy,
tride and true.
I'll be a living.
Thank you for everything you have given each and every one of us. We love you and will always miss you dearly.
