Please Don’t Pass Me By

Before Will left for college  for the first time, a year ago this last August, he played a few simple gospel songs and hymns at my request. I love big organ music, but my favorite is still the old hymns. He gave the pipe organ a warm sound by pressing a few buttons and played a stanza of one of my favorites, “Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior.” I felt like posting that today. (Sorry the video is so big. It’s off my phone.)

“…Savior, Savior,
Hear my humble cry,
While on others thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.”

    This was wonderful. I haven’t heard this hymn for quite some time. Thank you, Will for playing and Ingrid for sharing it. Don’t apologize for the large screen shot. I rather like it. 🙂

    That was wonderful. Your blog is such a blessing, Ingrid. I am just catching up. Loved the winter pictures and scenes, the two handsome little grandsons, and daddy and Emily sharing a special time together. You are blessed with a lovely family. Merry Christmas and many blessings in the New Year. Thank you for sharing. Oh…and the snowman cookies! Can’t wait to try them out with my grandson.

    My wife and I loved watching the Hallmark movies together. Yes, they always have happy endings. It was part of our Saturday date night. Unfortunately, life is not scripted with happy endings. My Bette passed away from cancer recently. It is when love is taken away that you truely compehend its meaning. Its a loss that hurts like no other pain. It leaves a hole in your soul. It reminds me of the vast love God has for us that he told his son he must die for you and me so that all of those that believe in Him can again be back together. It is this that keeps me going. Each day brings me closer to my Bette. We will meet at the Tree of Life and be together forever with Gods love shining down on us. As tears roll down my cheeks rest assured Ingrid that God loves you and me and he stands by our side. Our battle is with Satan. He uses everything in his power to bring harm to us. Ones we love often hurt us. We all have our family dynamics. Look past these issues and keep you heart and soul on Christ. Remember, His own deciple turned against him. Yet it is Love and Gods plan that was carried out. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
