Wanda's Funeral...

It's evening now and I haven't stopped, all day!

This morning I was up and running, early.  Well, that is a figure of speech only, because if you know me, you know that I cannot physically run.  lol :-))

However, I did exercise both at home and with my trainer, this morning.  Once again, I thank all who have prayed for healing for me, because the pain is now very little.  I am hoping it will disappear and not come back in full force, again.  Blessings to you, my friends...

In addition, I also worked, although I did not show homes.  Even so, work is work!

This afternoon, I attended a funeral service for my friend Wanda, who died a week ago.  Wanda was a lovely woman, not without problems of her own.  I will just say that I am grateful I was asked to sing at her celebration of life and give a eulogy for her, for she was truly a blessing. 

The first (1st) song I sang is below, along with the lyrics.  Truly, I thought that this song reflected on how Wanda and I related, when I first met her (more will be said about this, later). 

I decided to post the lyrics, because I've heard from some people that they cannot click and open links.

Not Forgotten by Twila Paris  (The lyrics follow the youtube link)

When you think your dream is dying
He has not forgotten you
When your body aches from tryin'
He has not forgotten you

When you worry for tomorrow
Even though the sky is blue
See the sun is shining
He has not forgotten you

When July feels like December
He has not forgotten you
When it's painful to remember
He has not forgotten you

When it seems you can not win
And there is not much left to lose
He has got a plan
And He has not forgotten you

And hope will spring eternal
In the home of those who know
That loving eyes will follow
Every where we go

And even in the darkness
His promises are true
Keep this in your heart
He has not forgotten you.

He is faithful
He is present
He is listening
He is love

He is faithful
He is with you
He is listening
He is love

If your tired flesh has squandered
What your spirit would have saved
And your aimless feet have wandered
Far from all you truly crave

Turn and run toward your Father
Do not wait another day
See His arms are open
And He is calling out your name

And hope will spring eternal
In the home of those who know
That loving eyes will follow
Every where we go

And even in the darkness
His promises are true
Keep this in your heart
He has not forgotten you

He is in your heart
And He has not... forgotten..... you.


Since there is still more to be said regarding Wanda's funeral service, I will address it, tomorrow.


Until next time...
