I was so sorry to hear of Don's passing. I know your loss is great & I am praying for God's hands to be upon your family. I don't know what I could say to bring you comfort but during times like these I turn to the gospel songs I love so much. Tonight I felt led to share the verses from two of my favorites in hope that they will remind you that we have God's promise of Heaven & to be reunited with our loved ones that have gone before. So here are the lyrics to help in your healing. "I don't know about tomorrow; I just live from day to day. I don't borrow from its sunshine For its skies may turn to grey. I don't worry o'er the future, For I know what Jesus said. And today I'll walk beside Him, For He knows what is ahead. Many things about tomorrow I don't seem to understand But I know who holds tomorrow And I know who holds my hand. Every step is getting brighter As the golden stairs I climb; Every burden's getting lighter, Every cloud is silver-lined. There the sun is always shining, There no tear will dim the eye; At the ending of the rainbow Where the mountains touch the sky. Many things about tomorrow I don't seem to understand But I know who holds tomorrow And I know who holds my hand. I don't know about tomorrow; It may bring me poverty. But the one who feeds the sparrow, Is the one who stands by me. And the path that is my portion May be through the flame or flood; But His presence goes before me And I'm covered with His blood. Many things about tomorrow I don't seem to understand But I know who holds tomorrow And I know who holds my hand... And from another one of my favorite gospel songs. "Oh, the joys of that glad meeting. With the saints who for us wait! What a blessed, happy meeting. Just inside the Eastern Gate". May God keep you & bless you. Love Lori & Bob
