More than a glimpse

Show Me Your Glory

I caught a glimpse of Your splendor
In the corner of my eye
The most beautiful thing I've ever seen
And it was like a flash of lightning
Reflected off the sky
And I know I'll never be the same

Show me Your glory
Send down Your presence
I want to see Your face
Show me Your glory
Majesty shines about You
I can't go on without You, Lord

When I climb down the mountain
And get back to my life
I won't settle for ordinary things
I'm gonna follow You forever
And for all of my days
I won't rest 'til I see You again

Show me Your glory
Show me Your glory
I can't live without You

~ Third Day ~

This is the song that actually inspired my blog name (back then it was 'ours') and seemed to constantly come to mind then. I remember singing these words as I reflected on the joy of being a Nana and having the privilege to share in loving and nurturing God's most precious creation! At the same time I realized how immeasurably more that joy will be when we stand in His presence and behold His majesty! There will be no mortal words to describe it!!

This song once again plays over in my mind since Dad left us. I know he prayed in earnest to meet his redeemer, longing to be absent from his body and free from pain. I imagine now, as my mind relentlessly plays back the images of those last moments - him gasping at the sight of Jesus holding out His hand and saying, "Come to me, my son...I'm taking all your burdens now - don't be afraid!

I don't know when my heart will stop aching, but I'm thankful Dad is experiencing more than just a glimpse...he's beholding unfathomable glory!

Hi Sara ... thanks for the note on our blog ~ yes, it's a good busy-ness :) ...ur welcome for the flowers :) We haven't wired flowers a lot -- it makes me a little nervous not knowing if they'll be as nice as we've requested, but I love the concept. I sent my mom flowers for her 65th Birthday and expected them to be more colorful -- I asked for Fall tones and was thinking of "vibrant Ontario Fall colors" ... but this is Saskatchewan we are talking about -- HELLO, I didn't even think of that. They were still pretty though ~ I saw pics.

Anyway...I hope you guys are doing well. I'm sure it has been a challenging time in different ways with your Dad passing away.

God bless you with strength & healing (and all that you need) through this journey of grieving...


I LOVE YOU said...
