Cry Out To Jesus (by Third Day)

I like this photo of Joey. Looks like he's looking at us from heaven. As Joe and Karen goes through a roller coaster ride of emotions, may this be a great "picture reminder" that Joey is in heaven. I also found a song/video that I think is quite comforting, I decided to post it here:



To everyone who's
lost someone they love
long before it was their time.
You feel like the
days you had were not enough
when you said goodbye.

And to all of the people
with burdens and pains
keepin' you back from your life.
You believe that there's nothing
and there is no one
who can make it right.

There is hope for the helpless,
rest for the weary,
and love for the broken hearts.
There is grace and forgiveness,
mercy and healing
He'll meet you wherever you are.

Cry out to Jesus. Cry out to Jesus.

For the marriage that's
struggling just to hang on
They lost all of their faith in love.
and they've done all they
can to make it right again
still it's not enough.

For the ones who can't
break the addictions and chains
you try to give up
but you come back again.
Just remember that
you're not alone
in your shame and
your suffering.

There is hope for the helpless,
rest for the weary,
and love for the broken hearts.
There is grace and forgiveness,
mercy and healing
He'll meet you wherever you are.

Cry out to Jesus.

When you're lonely and
it feels like the
whole world is falling on you
you just reach out,
you just cry out to Jesus

Cry to Jesus.

To the widow who suffers
from being alone,
wipin' the tears from her eyes.
For the children around
the world without a home,
say a prayer tonight.

There is hope for the helpless,
rest for the weary,
and love for the broken hearts.
There is grace and forgiveness,
mercy and healing
that meets you wherever you are.
There is hope for the helpless,
rest for the weary,
and love for the broken hearts.
There is grace and forgiveness,
mercy and healing
that meets you wherever you are.

Cry out to Jesus. Cry out to Jesus.
Cry out to Jesus. Cry out to Jesus.

Psalms 91:1-6 (TLB)
"We live within the shadow of the Almighty,sheltered by the God who is above all other Gods. This I declare, that he alone is my refuge,my place of safety; he is my God, and I am trusting him. For he rescues you from every trap,and protects you from the fatal plague. He will shield you with his wings! They will shelter you. His faithful promises are your armor. Now you dont need to be afraid of the dark any more, nor fear the dangers of the day; nor dread the plagues of darkness,nor disasters in the morning."

Psalm 91:1-6(KJV)
"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God, in Him will I trust. Surely, He will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler,and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with His feathers,and under His wings shall thou trust; His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor by the arrow that flieth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness;nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday."

Thanks Liza for this song. It was very comforting and reassuring... As Karen and I leave Virginia tomorrow morning to be with my failing mom in S.Cal., Pray for God to give us the strength to comfort those around us. My mom was recently diagnosed an aggressive cancer and has not long to live. As much as I would like to stay here in Va. and continue to heal and mourn...We need to go and be with my brothers and sister to help escort her to the arms of Jesus.. She may be one of first of family to see Joey.....Thanks to all of my praying family and friends everywhere.. Your comments and love have carried us both through the darkest time of our lives....Safe in the arms of Jesus...are my Father Joe, My son Joseph,and soon my mother Dolores...... Joe
