Jimmy

IN HONOR & MEMORY OF JIMMY

1993 - 2009

THE LORD HAS MADE HIMSELF VERY REAL TO OUR JIM.
NO LONGER DOES HE SAY HELP ME LORD,
FOR HE CAN JUST SEE HIM.
HIS MIND IS CLEAR AND HIS THOUGHTS ARE NOT CLUTTERED.
AND ANY ACTIVITY DONE, IS NO LONGER FLUSTERED.

HOW GREAT IS HIS PEACE AND HIS COMFORT NOW.
IN HIS HANDS HE RESTS, AS GOD CARESSES HIS BROW.
HIS MOM AND HIS DAD AND FRIENDS WRACKED IN PAIN.
KNOW THAT IN JESUS WE'LL SEE HIM AGAIN.

WE DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY LIFE HAPPENS THIS WAY.
FEELINGS TUMULTUOUS, WAVE THROUGH OUR DAY.
BUT GOD IN HIS WISDOM, TRULY CREATED JIMMY'S PLAN.
KNOWING BEFORE BIRTH,
HE'D WELCOME THIS SPECIAL YOUNG MAN.

WE MUST CONTINUE TO HOLD ONTO GOD'S GRACE.
ALLOWING HIS MERCY TO UPHOLD OUR SAD PLACE.

IF JIMMY KNEW GOD THE WAY THAT I DO.
AND I BELIEVE WITH MY HEART THIS TO BE TRUE.
WHO ARE WE TO LOSE OUR HOPE IN OUR GOD?
WHO CREATED US ALL AND THE LAND THAT WE TROD?

SO TAKE HEART MY DEAR FRIENDS, THIS IS NOT THE END.
A NEW BEGINNING FOR JIMMY HAS BEGUN A NEW TREND.
HE IS FULLY BRAND NEW IN THE LORD WE ADORE.
AND GOD WILL ALLOW US TO SEE HIM ONCE MORE.

IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.

A prayer written by our friend, Brian Young.

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
