Our lives were forever changed the day we lost Corey. He was an amazing man who loved the Lord and his family with all that he was. The pain of losing him is like no other. Our only comfort comes from knowing we will see him again someday.

I have moved the slideshow played at Corey's service to it's own post page above, titled "Corey's Memorial Service - August 10, 2010"

Someday my princes will come...

Last Sunday we visited Firewheel Church in Garland, Texas...great worship, in fact, I found myself holding back tears during one of the songs. I was unsuccessful. The lyrics really touched my heart. It's called Come Thou Fount, Come Thou King. I've added it to my playlist. It is from the old hymn Come Thou Fount but the lyrics have been changed some. I couldn't help but think of Corey as we sang the second verse...how he was lost in the utter darkness of his depression until God rescued him. Now his soul can sing a new song, his heart has found a home - his heavenly home. I closed my eyes as we sang and saw myself next to Corey worshiping together, singing that song. The chorus beckons Jesus to come, to hear his bride singing for him to come. I found a really cool ring while shopping at a Christian store while in Texas. It says, "Someday my prince will come." and has a cross on it. I was so excited when I found it (especially since it was only 3.99! I love a bargain :). I had never seen one with that phrase on it. It expresses perfectly my eager anticipation as I wait for my prince, Jesus, to come. I kinda wish it said princes, plural, since I know Corey will be there beside Jesus when I meet him face to face for the first time. It fills me such joy just thinking about that day. I can't wait!


Come Thou Fount, Come Thou King
VERSE 1
Come, Thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount, I'm fixed upon it
Mount of Thy redeeming love

VERSE 2
I was lost in utter darkness 'til You came and rescued me
I was bound by all my sin when Your love came and set me free
Now my soul can sing a new song, now my heart has found a home
Now Your grace is always with me
And I'll never be alone

CHORUS
Come, Thou Fount, come, Thou King; Come, Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride, to You we sing, come, Thou Fount of our blessing
Come, Thou Fount, come, Thou King; Come, Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride, to You we sing, come, Thou Fount of our blessing

VERSE 3
O, to grace, how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to Thee
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, Lord, take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

CHORUS
Come, Thou Fount, come, Thou King; Come, Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride, to You we sing, come, Thou Fount of our blessing
Come, Thou Fount, come, Thou King; Come, Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride, to You we sing, come, Thou Fount of our blessing
