Bill “Doc” Lupetti…R.I.P

Today, March 25, 2017 is my birthday. It would have been a much better birthday had I not gotten word that my dear brother, Bill had passed away on Thursday, March 23, 2017. I found out today after the women’s prayer breakfast when I checked my cell phone and found 3 voice mails. I knew what I would hear because I knew something was wrong when Bill’s phone went straight to voice mail when I called yesterday. I was with a friend who also tried to call yesterday and the same thing happened, straight to voice mail. I hoped and prayed that I was wrong, unfortunately, I was not. The Lord Jesus called Bill home on Thursday, March 23, 2017. Bill has received his  crown of glory!

Thank you, Lord God, for bringing Bill into my life. Bill has been such a huge blessing to me. I will miss his many stories about of life growing up, the Vietnam War and life in general, especially after he got saved. Bill was such a warm spirit, generous and kind, always willing to share his knowledge or refer you to someone else who might be able to help.

Father, words cannot begin to express or convey how deeply grieved I am. I look forward to seeing Bill again.

Happy Birthday…To Me

I thank you, Lord Jesus, for allowing me to live to see and celebrate yet another birthday! I am blessed that I was able to enjoy a night full of dancing last night. It has been months since I’ve been dancing. I danced until my feet hurt. It was nice to be missed, too.

What A Beautiful Name – Hillsong

This song was played at church a couple weeks ago and I have developed a habit of listening to it every day at work. I use ear buds and watch the lyrics as well.  I’m no musician, but I think the second half of the song needs more drums…a bit more power behind the vocals as well, at least that’s how I feel as I’m silently singing along. Regardless, I’m “in love” with this song.
