Today I went to a funeral for a distant relative. I knew her and when we were children we were close. Her family requested that me and my sisters sing at the services, four of us did as well as one of my neices. While standing at the podium my younger sister asked if any of us wanted to speak and without hesitation "I" stepped forward. Why? I don't know, but at that moment GOD gave me courage and I hope my words gave comfort. I believe GOD brought me through some tragic events because I would needed to help others someday.....But my grief is strong and today memories of my son's funeral services were first in my thoughts. "GOD I need your love to comfort this family and for me, please bring peace to our hurting hearts, Amen"
