A Friend from church has passed on, and today is his funeral, we are going to celebrate the home going of this man, as Christians we know he is in a better place, and although he will be missed, and his dear wife will have times of great sorrow, we have the assurance that we will meet him again, in heaven with our lord. The scripture we use is this Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. We know when our eyes close in death, that we will open them in heaven. So with this I will leave you today to ponder on these word to our favorite song we sing at many funerals through the years, It is soothing, it is peace giving, and it is appropiate for this time. God bless and do pray for the McInvale family.
I CALL IT HOME
SOMEWHERE BEYOND THE GRAVE, THERE IS A LAND WHERE JESUS WENT TO PREPARE, BY HIS OWN HAND AND FOR THE SAVED BY GRACE, THERE IS A RESTING PLACE AND IN A FEW MORE DAYS, IT WILL BE OURS.
CHORUS SOME CALL IT HEAVEN.. I CALL IT HOME SOME CALL IT DREAMIN.. LET ME DREAM ON SOME CALL IT PARADISE.. SOMEWHERE BEYOND THE SKIES SOME CALL IT HEAVEN.. I CALL IT HOME
SOME SAY THAT YOU CAN'T GO, BACK HOME AGAIN THINGS WILL NOT EVER BE, AS GOOD AS THEY'VE BEEN IV'E GOT GOOD NEWS FOR YOU, WHEN HEAVEN COMES INTO TO VIEW ONE GLIMPSE AND YOU'LL KNOW THE BEST... IS YET TO COME
SOME CALL IT HEAVEN.. I CALL IT HOME SOME CALL IT DREAMIN.. LET ME DREAM ON SOME CALL IT PARADISE.. SOMEWHERE BEYOND THE SKIES SOME CALL IT HEAVEN.. I CALL IT HOME
I am a Born again Christian Woman,Preacher's Wife, Mom to 5 grown children, Nana to 11, and great grandma to 8. I love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul and mind.
I just want to be all he wants me to and to live a simple and very peaceful life serving him daily. I want to be a blessing to those around me, and let my lord shine through me. We use the KJV Bible only, we believe it is the holy word of God, written by inspired men of old, filled and being led by the Holy Spirit of God.
