In Memoriam – Let my Lifesong Sing to You

My husband’s father died Friday after a brief illness. We had said our goodbyes last week – he heard how we loved him and the impact he had made on our lives and our gratitude for his life of love, faith, honesty, hard work. He truly lived with abandon and embraced life and its stages and seasons. It was an honor knowing him and being married to his son, who is so very like him.

A few weeks ago I wrote several posts about death and hope.  These relate to that post:

I wrote about the things we leave behind that are so important:  our love, joy, patience, respect.  The video for this posting is My Lifesong by Casting Crowns.  it is how I feel about my life and ultimately, my death.  It is a good song for my father-in-law.  I hope this touches you in a way that gives you peace and hope and about living your life.  He touched so many peoples’ lives in so many positive ways.  What a legacy!  He left behind a wealth of unconditional love, unquestioning charity, kindness, humor, love of family, country, and God.

Embrace life. Live life with abandon. Leave behind some of the happiness you bring to the table of life. God bless you all.
