Note: Passed Away February 7,1975 Song: "Rock of Ages"
Scripture: Psalm 121--I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the lord, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
Prayer: Our Father, we thank you for this Psalm which assures us of your care and your protection and your watching over us throughout the days of our lives and even into eternity. Heavenly Father, we pray that now in this day that is very difficult for all of us that you would strengthen our hearts that we might feel your presence in our lives and that your spirit might lift us up and encourage us. Even as we sorrow and even, Heavenly Father, as the pains of loss and seperation are great, we pray that in the midst of our hearts, you will be there to reassure, to comfort, and to give strength. Again, we thank you for this Psalm. We thank you for your Word to us and we pray that it might indeed lodge in our hearts and minds today. These things we pray together today in Christ's name. Amen.

Song: "I Come to the Garden Alone"
Message: Some of the most magnificent scripture, to me, in the Bible is found in the Book of I Peter in the first chapter. I would like to share this with you and make them the basis of my comments to you this afternoon.
