Who would think that when faced with heartache, sorrow and pain that not only good can come out of those times, but that they could turn out to be some of the "times of my life?"
When our youngest son, Kevin, died in January of 2002, my precious niece created a video in honor of his life set to music.
At one point in the video, pictures of him and his fiance,Vee's, time together as a couple was set to several songs that fit perfectly as background music for their love story. Two of my favorites were the Righteous Brother's "I Had The Time of My Life," and "Unchained Melody." To me, these songs spoke of the essence of their short-lived love that began as a playful friendship, quickly turning to a deep and abiding love.
These songs also speak to me of the life that I have lived with the "love of my life," AND the joy that is mine in Christ - living and abiding in His everlasting and faithful love, as I live with Him in my heart and soul, His spirit ever moving me away from the edge of the tomb toward our Heavenly HOME. How I hope that this will be one of the songs that I will sing eternally . . .
"Now, I had the time of my life
No, I've never felt like this before.
Yes, I swear it's the truth
And, I owe it all to you (Lord).
You're the one thing I can't get enough of
So I'll tell you something
I've had the time of my life."
Because of You, my God and my King, no matter what comes my way, when it's my time to leave this earth's pull I'll say . . "I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE AND I OWE IT ALL TO YOU!!"
With Love and Gratitude,
