Another holy moment “coincidence” for this week. Today was my turn to lead devotions at the local Lutheran Retirement Home. I misunderstood an email and thought the hymns had been selected, so I did not get in touch with the activities director to let her know my choice. When I arrived, she had "arbitrarily" picked two great hymns that fit perfectly what I was planning to talk about. But the third fit “just because.” The hymn we finished with was, God Be With You Till We Meet Again (http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=god+be+with+you+til+we+meet+again&FORM=VIRE5#view=detail&mid=B609E0C0C869F26BD119B609E0C0C869F26BD119).
Many of these folks have been coming to devotions for the entire time I have been leading them (twice a year). I know their faces if not their names and stories. I watch them sing and nod and sometimes sleep. :-)
Certainly I will miss them, but I know God will be with them until we meet again - I am so thankful!!
