My dear sister in Christ, Beve, went home to be with Jesus this morning.
My prayers are with her husband, Dale, and her daughters. This song is for them:
You’re in a better place,
I’ve heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times I’ve rejoiced for you.
But the reason why I’m broken,
The reason why I cry,
Is how long must I wait to be with you
I close my eyes and see your face
If home’s where my heart is then I’m out of place
Lord, won’t you give me strength to make it through somehow
I’ve never been more homesick than now.
Help me, Lord, because I don’t understand your ways
The reason why I wonder if I’ll ever know
But even if You showed me the hurt would be the same
Because I’m still here so far away from home
In Christ there are no goodbyes
In Christ there is no end
So I’ll hold on to Jesus with all that I have
To see you again.
