Hopefully, you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday. If you didn't, I would suggest you do.
If you have, you'll know the information I received by e-mail that I posted on Facebook (FB), concerning the gospel music Thomas A. Dorsey created. And, why he created it.
A couple people on FB liked the posting and shared comments and links. I decided I'd share the links with you, so you could not just hear more about Thomas A. Dorsey, but you would actually hear others sing his music, and hear him speak, and sing other music.
Here is a link where you'll hear Thomas A. Dorsey speak. But, it's a woman who sings Precious Lord. Here's the link for you to listen to and/or sing along: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlmCflPD2s8.
Here is the link where you'll see and hear Thomas A. Dorsey speak and sing, when he was much older: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEosw5GUCzQ.
To me, it was wonderful seeing and hearing all this.
Not just because the music was wonderful.
Mostly, because what was said and shown confirmed that how I feel about grief, is true.
Grief never seems to end.
Even though we would like it to end.
The grief doesn't have to be just of a spouse, like I have experienced. It also happens for other family members and friends, who have passed away. Like the loss/death of my parents, brother and some friends of mine.
Grief isn't easy. But, God is good.
In fact, He's wonderful.
Thinking of this, brought to mind, Psalm 147:5, "Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite."
Amen! Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite.
He is so wonderful and/or great... that He knows what we experience when those we love and/or care for, lose their lives.
His power is so great, that He helps each of us, through the grief that we experience.
His understanding is infinite. Always. And, forever.
For this, I am truly grateful.
And, always will be.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
