TSMSS - Save a Place for Me

I was so touched by the memories and stories folks shared for yesterday's Flashback Friday regarding their early grief experiences. Though the relationships differed - grandparents, children, parents, friends -- a common thread was the comforting assurance we who are believers have in Christ: death is not the end, but the beginning. The words of Matthew West's newest song are absolutely beautiful; we say goodbye for just a short while. Save a Place for Me, I'll be there soon!

This is a beautiful song Linda. I haven't heard it before and really enjoyed it.

This will be a comfort to so many... 'save a place for me'... those words make heaven so personal and our hope so real.

There is a video to this song about a woman who died of cancer but she spent her final times making memories with her family. Its a very awesome video and this song goes so well with it. Thanks so much for sharing.

Linda, you were so right about our song choices for this week. I hadn't heard of this song before but enjoyed it.

This life isn't really very long. We are just passing through on our way to our real home. I for one, want to make the most of the time I've been given.

Blessings and love,
Debbie

Thanks for sharing that song, Linda. I had not heard it before. I was thinking of a friend who lost a loved one and of my parents who are in heaven.
