Day 52

With the huge choir doing a fantastic Hallelujah performance

One would think that a memorial service would be full of sadness and crying. That is the way death and funerals seemed to go in my childhood. I am so blessed to be part of a community of believers. Death is sad because we miss the person, but in many ways it is also a time of great joy and hope. Joy that our loved one is with the Lord, hope that others will turn to God and repent and believe and also a time of remembering the good in the person's life and the legacy that he or she leaves. Such was today's memorial service. And what a fabulous choir we heard!!
