I loved to sing this song. Janet gave me a keyboard for Christmas – the last Christmas I spent here on earth. The keyboard had a karaoke function – which just happened to include my favorite song.
This is my one and only attempt at Karaoke. The music was a little jazzy, so I was too. I’d like to share it with you, now.
I would also like to take this opportunity to let you all know that my heart was truly in that song. I was a born again, bible thumping Christian, yes I was. A true prayer warrior. And now, in heaven.
There were brief periods during urinary tract infection delirium episodes that I didn’t seem to be – but underneath that was a heart that loved the Lord. And during a near-death dream experience one month before I truly died, my spirit was reawakened and renewed.
Janet videod me the day after the dream, and I was starting to tell her what the angel told me, and mentioned about my time away from the Lord – but the video stopped before I finished.
I can fill in the gap now. The angels explained to me what had happened, and things to come, which gave me such emotional relief. And you know, He could’ve taken me that day. But He did not until a month later. Perhaps I was left here a little while longer to go into a period of reversal of some of my memory and confusion symptoms to show it is possible.
And believe me. I definitely had dementia. Lewy Body Dementia was listed on my death certificate. But maybe I stayed just one more month to show that things can change.
And now, today, I feel so moved to share a certain verse of scripture with you because it seems there may be someone who needs it.
”Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all your ways, and He will direct your paths.” -Proverbs 3:5,6
When things just don’t make sense, don’t worry about it. Trust in Him, and He will direct your paths – not just one path, but many.
-Shirley Ann Snow
P.S. Please do not worry that I’m going to start preaching. I just wanted an opportunity to let you know who I am.
