Sometimes we come to life’s crossroads, and we view what we think is the end
But God has a much wider vision, and he knows that it’s only a bend
The road will go on and get smoother, and after we’ve stopped for a rest
The path that lies hidden beyond us, is often the path that is best
So rest and relax and grow stronger, let go and let God share your load
And have faith in a brighter tomorrow, you’ve just come, to a bend in the road.

J.T. will lie in repose at home, on Monday & Tuesday the 8th & 9th. House private on Wednesday morning.
