Today My Heart Was Touched

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

Today we attended the funeral of a young friend and mother of five; just 31 years of age and who passed away from Inflammatory Breast Cancer. I was deeply moved, as her four oldest children, her brothers and sisters, and even her mother gave beautiful tributes to her. And then her strong, supportive husband spoke of her courage, faith, and gratitude and uplifted all of us with his unwavering testimony. Her blogspot is inspirational: amberchase.webly.com. Her mother told how Amber was strengthened by the hymns and comforted by the beauty of music. For the opening song, the congregation sang, “There Is Sunshine In My Soul Today”; which fit Amber’s personality perfectly.  I’ve been inspired to do an arrangement of this hymn, because it’s also one of my favorites.  Look for it soon in my Free LDS Sheet Music and Free Hymn Arrangements. This evening, in honor of Amber’s children, I recorded an arrangement of  “I Have A Little Gospel Light”, which will be in my Primary and Children’s Album.
