Amazing Grace

Friday, February 15th we buried my grandma I. It was cold and the wind was so strong it knocked over the flowers that had been brought. Later Eric said that the wind was grandma saying goodbye to everyone. Mom responded that it was more like grandpa to tease us in that fashion. Uncle T and Aunt K, K and Y, E, Y, and I, and L. Aunt J. Uncle R and Aunt L, J, G, M, and J. Mom, R, and me and Eric, and Theodore. Cousin K. Uncle J and Aunt A, J and S, and J, D, and M had sent a bouquet of irises, gladiolus, and roses. We threw dirt on her grave, sang songs, and listened to Bible passages. It was heartbreaking and beautiful.

I love you, grandma.

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found.
Was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relived.
How precious did that grace appear
the hour (that) I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come.
'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far
and grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His Word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
as long as life endures.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow.
The sun forbear to shine.
But God who called me here below,
will be forever mine.

When we've been there ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun,
we've no less days to sing God's praise
than when we'd first begun.
