Thanks for sharing this, Mary! Have a blessed week!
Ah, takes me back to my young days in Maryland & Virginia when I attended church with my neighbors! Many blessings! ~Lisa
Oh Mary! That was my father's favorite hymn, and it was also his own father's favorite. We had the congregation sing it as we walked out from his HOME going service. I know folks expected to see tears on his family as we walked out, and they saw them. But it was a special kind of tear because we were all singing it as we walked and it gave us a great joy. All I could picture in my head as I sang were his big old clod hoppers (size 14 shoes...) walking in that sunlight, straight away into the face of God. Why I pictured dad wearing his shoes in heaven, I do not know, but I did. Since my once very athletic dad had been confined to a wheelchair the last days of his life, the fact that he was truly walking in sonshine made it all the more special. You have given me a treat his morning.
Beautiful...and you were walking (well hiking) in His sunlight also...wonderful hymn, haven't heard it in years
Thank you, each sweet comment brightens my day. Blessings!
