Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Aunt Edna's Funeral Guest Post by Dauighter Judie
A Great Crowd of Witnesses
Hi Mom and Dad!
I am now home safe and wanted to share with you what
happened on Friday at Aunt Edna's funeral.
I arrived in Lindsay on Wednesday and stayed at the one
hotel in Lindsay, Super 8.
On Thursday I looked around town and found the
Cemetery and funeral home.
I woke up early on Friday and as always headed to the
motel breakfast in my PJ's.
When I saw Edna's daughter Anna and her husband David and their kids I said oops
and thought about going back to the room to change but David said real loud,
I told them if I knew they were going to be there I
would have worn some clothes!Hah, Hah!
Anyway, I wasn't sure what to expect since everyone
(especially Jimmy) was crying so hard at Grandma Ruth’s funeral.
It seemed like nothing was planned at all.Anna told me they decided to have a viewing
which I appreciated.When I arrived the
family was sitting around a large table picking out a headstone and planning
the service, this was 11:50.
I was trying to be real quite and allow them privacy.
At the grave site, I arrived at 1:55 and everyone was
waiting for me - -.it was a very small service.Around seven people were there that remembered Edna from her church in
When the preacher asked if anyone wanted to say
anything, Melvin was the only family member that said anything. Anna was a
mess, very distraught.
At the end I went up and read your post from
your blog and Anna's face lit up and she was smiling.She really understood why you weren't there but she appreciated your
thoughts and message.
