Do you all realize this could be me? Do you have any idea how that makes my heart burn?
I don't expect you too, honest.
Oh Jesus, hold me together...
The body of Christ is alive and well here in Northern Michigan. We have had meals brought to us already and it soothes our battered senses, knowing someone cares that much. I have no idea how many people are praying at the moment..it is mind blowing to think upon.
I cannot wait to be in church tomorrow. It is like a hospital when you are injured; you need to go to receive the medicine and Dr care to get better..
I heard a song that has been rolling around in my head since I learned this awful news..
"I Will Rise" by Chris Tomlin. If you are familiar with it, when he gets to the part where he sings,
"And the voices of many angels sing, worthy is the Lamb,
I hear the voices of many angels sing, worthy is the Lamb..."
I ended up on the floor, weeping, with my hands open to Heaven.
Oh Jesus, hold me together.
Mom and I head downstate tomorrow. Tim and the children will come Monday. The funeral is Tuesday. Amy, his wife, said it is going to be a celebration of Steve's life. Thank You Lord..even in her worst, most tragic moment, she is looking to You.
Oh Jesus, hold her together..
Here is the link to his obituary...I cannot believe I even typed that word...
God You are faithful, You are Good and You love us,
Bonnie, Steve's big sister.
