Memorial service an eye opener

My wife's uncle passed away this week we had a memorial service for him.

During the visitation. I talked with Don achildhood neighbor of my wife and he asked how was doing. My standard response is " all things considered I'm doing well", he said I'll say so the last time I saw yoh, you were in a wheel chair, that was Christmas 2014. What a difference 20 months,hard work and stubbornness can make.

I must remember those days and not take for granted any part of my life.

 

One of the songs we sang and the minister talked at length about was amazing Grace

I realized it is gods grace that I'm here today. I was blind but now I see.

I was blinded by the assumption that hard work andoney would bring happiness. Now I derive my happiness by helping others and giving hope.

I'm so blessed I thank and praise God for saving me and I hope I can meet his/ her expectations

My eyes were opened through the death of uncle David.

God does work mysterious ways.

Be well my friends

Peace, love, hoy and pt

Jay

Yes congratulations. For surviving and thriving. We learned we cant take it with us. All that matters is the love and care we have for each other.

you are a blessing encouraging and comforting.

I also am out of the wheelchair but still struggle so I know what it is like. Many prayers to you.
