This morning as I am preparing for the 5:30am visitation, I find myself asking, "What makes Momma so positive, so confident during this tribulation?" It is her faith in God. It is as Mary Margaret S. said to me yesterday "I don't know how people go through this without knowing Jesus." Then the chorus of Mom's favorite hymn started to sing within me.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living
just because He lives!
If you know this marvelous hymn by Bill & Gloria Gaither, think about the 3rd verse. It is true of the marvelous Glenda Cole.
