God’s Tender Care

When trouble comes, as it does to us all
God is so great and we are so small
But there is nothing that we need know
If we have faith that wherever we go
God will be waiting to help us bear
Our pain and sorrow, our suffering and care
For no pain or suffering is ever to much
To yield itself to God’s merciful touch!

Celebration of Life Services will be conducted Saturday, September 12, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. at Highland Acres Church of Christ. Al Simmons will officiate and burial will follow in the Belmont Cemetery.
