    I do have a lead sheet with the melody and chords in Finale Notepad.  (for the song Remembrance)  If anyone is interested, you can send me your email address and I THINK I can attach it as a Word document.  Don't know how good it is, but if it can be used in any way, or just gives a simple melody to the words, I'd love it!  :)

    My email is swenson@phonewave.net

    Just can't seem to stay away from this site.  :)

  • Remembrances

    Written Sep 3, 2011 4:58pm

    With the anniversary of 9/11 approaching, I have been thinking alot about this thing of remembrances.  At this point in time, there are daily remembrances for me of Sara's life and of her death.  Dates are important, times are important, places are important. . . . not necessarily those things themselves, but the remembrances they bring.  I know that is true for EVERYONE.  At our church, we celebrate communion on the first Sunday of every month.  That is a monthly remembrance of Christ's death and His sacrifice for us.  But, THAT remembrance should be daily for us as well. 

    Two things I want to share, and then I THINK this will be my last post on caring bridge.  With lots of help, and a final push from my wonderful daughter, Kari, I have started a blog.  If anyone is interested, here is the link, and you are welcome to visit and read my meandering thoughts.  (Well, actually, I can't even figure out how to copy and paste the link. . . . but the name of the blog is  lettersonlinedpaper.blogspot.com)  Maybe I can get Kari to copy and paste it on here later.  (As you can see, I still have a LONG way to go in computer competency!)  I also want to thank you all again for the incredible support and encouragement you have been to our family for the past two years of Sara's diagnosis, treatment, brief respite, and then her death.  We have been so blessed to know you were praying for her and for us.  The outpouring of love was beyond amazing!  THANK YOU!

    I wrote a song for 9/11 and in honor of remembrances.  Here it is. . .

    Remembrance

    Take a moment to remember all that God has done for you. 

    Take a moment and be silent, turn your heart to what is true.

    Every day brings its own struggles, often heartache, often pain.

    But there's joy and consolation in the pow'r of Jesus' name.

    Look to Jesus and remember that He died so you could live.

    You can rest in Him completely, rest that only He can give.

    Look to Jesus and remember that He died so you could live.

    Trust His love, believe His promise, just be still, remember Him.

    There's no greater love to offer than when one lays down His life.

    In remembrance we will honor those who made that sacrifice.

    Many give their lives in service, this is love beyond degree.

    Jesus gave His life on Calv'ry, this is love that sets us free!

    Look to Jesus and remember that He died so you could live.

    You can rest in Him completely, rest that only He can give.

    Look to Jesus and remember that He died so you could live.

    Trust His love, believe His promise, just be still, remember Him.
