I wrote a story with this same title a while back. It’s in the archives of the previous blog posts if you want to go back and read it. The song was inspired by a real person who was a friend of my parents. I was compelled to write it when I had mistakenly felt sorry for her after she had passed away. The reason for that feeling was that it appeared that she died all alone and without a family. I quickly caught a different, more accurate perspective and the lyrics to this song came from the beautiful truth of that perspective.

I have been married for 27 years. We are almost empty-nesters, with the youngest of our three sons still living at home. I was a stay-at-home mom and home schooled our boys for nearly all of their elementary through high school years. My husband and I were and are grateful that such a thing was possible for our family. These days I am writing a lot. The more I write, the more I want to write! I write and sing and play my own songs. I love music and until early 2020 I had a regular and cherished ministry at two assisted living/rehabilitation hospitals. The pandemic and all of the strict requirements left me on the outside, missing my dear friends who I was unable to visit for over a year. The road is now paved to re-open in about a month (June, 2021) and I will have the great privilege to go and sing to them and tell them about Jesus' love for them once again! Another big milestone next month will be my third anniversary of beginning this blog. When I studied up to educate myself on how to even start a blog, I read that it is common to quit the blog after a year or two. I can't believe it worked and I stayed with it! It always encourages me and strengthens my resolve to continue blogging when I hear from you, the readers. I hope and pray that this blog will continue to be a blessing and encouragement to many of you. Thank you for your friendship and support. View all posts by thislifeuntilthen-debispurlock
