TSMSS...................... If You Could See Me Now

This week has really seemed to be a week about death.   Tuesday on  The Biggest Loser one of the contestents brothers passed away.  Then Wednesday night our Pastor spoke about death and how we are only a vapor.
Thursday morning when I read various blogs Linda told how her long time friend with cancer had passed away.
Then just this morning Sandie blogged that a dear friend of hers passed away on Wednesday unexpectedly.
So this morning this song came to my mind.

I heard it back in December1994.  I was on the way to my Dad's funeral.  I can still remember exactly where I was.   We were just turning on the highway where the church was.   Sitting at a red light with just enough time to hear it before we arrived at the church for his funeral.  I had never heard it before then and have never heard it since then.  But it is a wonderful song that says it all so much better than I ever could.
Even though we miss them and long to be able to be with them.  We wouldn't want them back suffering as they were before they left us.

Linda and Sandie my thoughts and prayers are with you today and in the days ahead.

  4. Excellent song, Thna. I haven't heard it in ages, but it is indded a healing song after the death of a loved one who was a believer.

    In other news -- I am away from home, but Amoeba called me and let me know your package arrived. He was quite thrilled with the discovery of the etch-a-sketch. He tried to pretend he wasn't, but I heard the glee in his voice. ;) Thank you. I can't wait until I get home to check it out.

  7. What a beautiful Don Moen song!

    As I was listening, I thought of my mom and my grandparents in heaven. No more pain or sorrow.

    It's interesting because several of us were on the same wave length this week. I posted Carrie Underwood's "Temporary Home".

    Blessings,
    Debbie

  13. Thena,

    Please help me spread the word of a sister in Christ who so desperately needs help with a limited amount of time left.
