Photo Slideshow

Finally carved out some time to re-work Lily's Photo Slideshow and make it blog-acceptable.  Unfortunately, the video showed at her funeral service was several minutes longer and just too big to upload here.  This photo slideshow is also different in that the background music is "Lily's Song"....a very special song written and sung by our endearing Pastor, Phil Moser (I'll include some of the words below).  

May Lily's sweet life set your eyes on heaven; where she is living:

"Lily's Song" by Phil Moser

It's Christmas Time, we'll always remember
a baby born one day in December.
As God's love shined, revealed through His giving,
so this we know our Lily is living.

Like the lilies of the field, she's safe on heaven's shore.
Jesus Christ, who paid the price, holds her forevermore.

Before she felt the Lord's embrace, 
she was held in her mother's loving arms.
Before she saw her Savior's face, 
she was seen through her daddy's tear-filled eyes.
Before she heard the Lord's "well done", 
she was loved by her brother's tender smiles.
Before she entered heaven's gates, 
her soul touched the earth for just a while.

Jessica I absolutely LOVE Lily's slideshow. She was so perfect, how blessed you were able to spend time with her. I prayed and prayed for a borrowed time with Elisha, but God needed him right away. God Bless you honey and I hope you are doing ok.
In His Love,
