On our way to the hospital, Chad and I had the radio on in the car and "I Can Only Imagine" was playing. This is going to sound weird, but I wasn't so much worried about a blood clot killing me as I was worried about Chad being left behind without me. This song brought comfort to us both that day. And I'm happy to report that I'm not a ghost, and am in fact alive and well to this day. Although I do have to wear nasty compression hose, which are from Satan.
I can only imagine what it will be like, when I walk by Your side.
I can only imagine, what my eyes will see, when Your Face is before me.
I can only imagine. I can only imagine.
Surrounded by Your Glory, what will my heart feel?
Will I dance for you, Jesus? Or in awe of You be still?
Will I stand in Your presence, or to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing 'Hallelujah!'? Will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine! I can only imagine!
Not so bad, really. Lyrics from lyricsmode.
Do you have a song/poem/thought that gets you through the tough times?
