great service this morning

God is good

the less flesh the more spirit you can hear, feel, see, etc

we’re about a month away from the retreat

I met God at the lake yesterday

I really felt Him

I felt loved, accepted, and freed, and everything I needed to feel at that very moment

I left lighter and encouraged.

today was the funeral and celebration of the life of my great aunt.

it was my first funeral of a loved one ever.

it was my first time in a cemetary.

it was an interesting experience

but i can surely say that when the one you love loves the LORD there is a sense of celebration.

we cried, laughed, sang, and celebrated.

i am blessed to have not lost many family members.

my people live long lives and leave lasting legacies.

i am thankful that even in her death she blessed and encouraged and brought family together.

there is still sorrow but the processes of today have certainly lightened the load.

HE give beauty for ashes, strength for fear, gladness for mourning and peace for despair.

 which reminds me of a song

put on the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness

lift up your heart to GOD

pray in the spirit and with understanding

oh magnify the LORD
