Giving Thanks For My Friends!

Today I was at a funeral - a lovely gentleman who was a member of my orchestra until very recently.  He died at the age of 86 and his funeral was this morning.

It was a lovely day - and nice to be able to remember such a gracious man - and to support his family.

We sang 2 hymns at the service; and one of the verses of one of them reminded me of something that an American friend pointed out years ago -

The sun that bids us rest is waking
Our brethren ’neath the western sky,

It is part of one of the verses ... The whole hymn is under the cut if you want to read it.  It talks about the fact that throughout the earth there are always people praying.

However it made me realise that since I have become involved in LJ I now have friends around the world.  Whatever time I post this there will be some of you awake.  Whatever time I am awake there will be some of you posting something for me to read.

So as I said Goodbye to Gerry this morning I was able to add a huge Thank You to my great f-list ... Hi!!
