It is well with my Soul..

Yesterday was a day full of family, remembering, reflecting, laughing and enjoying and Worship….

It seems like every song sung spoke to my heart and my eyes welled up…

There is something so amazing to worship that even on a good day, I can often find my heart tender and touched by the words of the songs we sing….

And so yesterday, surrounded by my family at Shawnee Park CRC and very aware of Len’s absence, I felt especially tender and expectant of God’s presence.

We sang a hymn to the tune of the Navy Hymn which we sang at Len’s funeral….Len would have loved it….

We sang Wonderful, Merciful, Savior and I was struck by how real the words feel in these past weeks…Len would have loved it….

My two nieces sang It is well with my soul and I wept at the beautiful voices, the rich words and the very true message that echoed and resonated in our hearts…Len would have loved it…

We began our “Christmas” Sunday worshiping together and it paved the way for our beautiful day together…Len would have loved it…

Christmas 2012 has left us changed forever. As we gathered for our family Christmas it was a beautiful time of looking back and enjoying all the moments held. Our hearts are full and I am thankful for my family who lives life honestly together.

It is well with my soul….
