Musings From A Musical Mind

Today I go to a memorial service for an old friend – someone we go way back with – since our first days attending New Life Church in Renton – some 15 years ago.  My husband Greg has done many of these over the years.  I don’t know how he gets through some of them – I wouldn’t do so well keeping my composure – especially the services for children and the unsaved.

There are many things in our lives that are hard for us to do.  That is just one of them.  We all are born – and we all die.  It is a hard cold reality.

Other things are hard for each one of us on a personal level.  Each of us has to face difficult things – and instead of running away – we MUST face them – eventually.  I wrestle with this fact.  I don’t like it.  And yet – today – even I must face another difficult thing.  Or perhaps it would be trivial for you – but for me – it’s difficult and will take every ounce of my will – not to back out – but just face it.

The time has come.  The choice is mine.  I choose the higher road.  And so my journey continues…

God Bless

  1. These points of re-confrontation with past issues and the places, things or people involved with them is always most difficult, I think. You are brave. You are not traveling on your journey alone and I hope you are able to draw strength from that fact.

  2. I can imagine it would be hard – we’ll all miss Ken a lot.

    • Your brother’s letter was read by Greg – it was so nice. Thanks Brian – yes he was the “real deal”.

      • i haven’t seen the letter. i was supposed to write one too but let it get away from me.

      • Yours would have been great too! I know he really impacted your life, Brian. Mark is a personal friend and went to Northwest College with me and was in Choralon’s with me to a couple of years. What a great guy! He got up and spoke today about his Dad being his “hero” and other nice things about him and that’s when I lost it. It was a very moving service. Greg did a great job.
