Sunday, May 5, 2013
I found this in the folder that I keep all the pictures that I hope to post eventually. It isn't perfect for this particular Sunday, but it works.
Lifting up our voices and singing can be difficult during difficult times, but in all circumstances we must find reasons to rejoice.
Today is the prayer service for Grizz's aunt. She has been fighting breast cancer since last July (remember this quilt?). Tomorrow is the funeral.
One of my uncles passed away just a few months ago. He had been fighting various cancers for several, several years.
So, even though we're only 5 months into 2013, we've already said good-bye to two family members, but we have also welcomed one. In all circumstances we must find reasons to rejoice. Alleluia.
