This past week my friend played a song for me that she and her husband would sing together, especially after his Alzheimer’s diagnoses and throughout his illness.
I did not know this song, but maybe you do.
Lyrics were something like this:
We are going.
Heaven knows where we are going.
It will be hard we know
And the road will be muddy and rough.
But we’ll get there
Heaven knows we will get there
We know we will.
It’s when we lose that vision,
when we don’t know anymore that we’ll get there,
that we despair.
When there’s no longer anything LARGER than the details of our days, and the hassles of our lives
then we are depleted of JOY.
- John 21:3 - 17
