Day 26: Worship songs we sang at the home going……

Over the next few days, I want to highlight some of the songs that the Diem/Herro/Dowdy family selected and sang at Elizabeth and the boys’ home going.  For those that were there with our family, many of you told me how you felt the amazing presence of God in a way that you hadn’t before…..especially at a funeral.  Even in such sadness, our God was there comforting us.  Our family felt strongly that we were going to worship and give glory to God that day, in spite of and even in this circumstance.

My prayer for today is for those that attended the service, these songs will bring you close once again to the Great I AM!   For those that weren’t able to be there that day, I hope you too can use this to draw close to our precious Lord.

Today, I want to share one of the songs we sang……”Light up the Sky” by the Afters.  Listening to this song almost a year later and hearing the lyrics, I have come to appreciate them even more:

Light light light up the sky
You light up the sky to show me You are with me
I can’t deny
No I can’t deny that You are right here with me
You’ve opened my eyes
So I can see You all around me
Light light light up the sky
You light up the sky to show me
That You are with me

Thank you God…..for you have shown us repeatedly that you are with us…..through your closeness, your peace, your comfort.  But also through your creation……through rainbows, butterflies, geckos, crickets, hummingbirds, baby birds and most recently dragonflies.  Thank you for opening my eyes!  And thank you for your loving and comforting presence that was oh so very close that July 30th, 360 days ago today.

Breathe……

Julie
