Pastor Terry Stauffer and his wife Juanita and their family suffered a terrible loss late Saturday afternoon in the tragic death of their 14 year old daughter Emily Joy. Please take this family to His throne. May He provide comfort and the peace now and in the difficult days to come.
I have copied the following from Terry’s web site.
To leave this weary road
And join the saints who dwell on high
Who’ve found their home with God
It is not death to close
The eyes long dimmed by tears
And wake in joy before Your throne
Delivered from our fears
O Jesus, conquering the grave
Your precious blood has power to save
Those who trust in You
Will in Your mercy find
That it is not death to die
It is not death to fling
Aside this earthly dust
And rise with strong and noble wing
To live among the just
It is not death to hear
The key unlock the door
That sets us free from mortal years
To praise You evermore
