With Love For My Uncle Bob
Our prayers have all been answered. I finally arrived. The healing that had been delayed has now been realized. No one's in a hurry. There's no schedule to keep. We're all enjoying Jesus, just sitting at His feet.
My light and temporary trials have worked out for my good, To know it brought Him glory when I misunderstood. Though we've had our sorrows, they can never compare. What Jesus has in store for us, no language can share.
If you could see me now, I'm walking streets of gold. If you could see me now, I'm standing strong and whole. If you could see me now, you'd know I've seen His face. If you could see me now, you'd know the pain is erased. You wouldn't want me to ever leave this place, If you could only see me now.
Tonight my family will gather for a small intimate memorial service to celebrate my Uncle Bob who went to be with Jesus this weekend. You have no idea what a beautiful statement that is to write. So many people prayed for many years to see him make that decision. I know my Mammaw was so excited to see him walk through the gates of heaven.
Uncle Bob was a quiet man. Very simple, but very talented. He had an amazing gift for music... singing and guitar. His life's work was in construction and he was very good at it. He served our Country in Vietnam and, like every other brave man who fought, came back a changed man because of it.
Uncle Bob loved people. And we loved him. Please pray for our family tonight.
(Uncle Bob with his pride and joy... his family!
His two handsome sons, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren.)
