Pieces of a Funeral

Not really ready to write about much but I do want to share a few things for those of you who were too far away to experience the comfort that was my Moms funeral this past Monday.

My Aunt had heard this song and really resonated with it and brought it to us to share at the funeral. It's incredibly powerful, painful, but fitting.


Here is the picture tribute put together to remember her life in photos.

And these two scripture verses came to the surface

Revelation 21:4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

James 1:12 Blessed are those who persevere under trial, because when they have stood the test, they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

It was an incredibly painful hour for me, but I am so thankful that all these pieces and more came together to honor my Mom, attempt to make sense of all of this, and bring comfort to those in attendance.

Hey Leanne,
I downloaded the Resurrection song as soon as I got home on Monday- it was a song that really hit me and got me thinking. Stay Strong!
Love,
Jenna

Oh Leanne.

I am so sorry. I had no idea that you lost your mom. I will be carrying you in my heart and in prayer. I pray Jesus will be very near and present to you dear one.
