So I haven't blogged since Tuesday morning. Life has been a bit busy. Tuesday we didn't do too much, Wednesday, same thing, and then Thursday was Thanksgiving, so we went and saw a bunch of our family. Friday, yesterday, we had the viewing. There were so many people!! Thank you to all of you who came out. My dad was so well loved. So I hugged so many people, met so many people, shook so many hands....and so on! My mom was a real trooper! She was so good! Her feet hurt, though when she got home last night.
Today was the funeral, and it was so nice. Maybe my dad was looking down from heaven smiling! My high school choir sang. We sang "In Christ Alone"
In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,W
hen fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.
In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev'ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.
There in the ground His body lay,L
ight of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow'r of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.
It was a really nice funeral. I have never been to a funeral/ viewing before. So I was a bit nervous, but it was really nice! And I got to visit with my friends from Michigan, who he spoke at the service. He is an awesome guy! His family was part of a church plant we started. They are awesome. He was one of my dad's best friends.
So, now I am sitting here, relaxing.
Thanks for all of your prayers...
