A LOVED ONE KNEW HE'D REACHED THE END OF LIFE'S JOURNEY,
BUT HE'D BEEN HOLDING TO GOD'S HAND A LONG, LONG TIME
AND AS I KNELT BESIDE HIS BED,
MY HEART WAS THRILLED AT WHAT HE SAID,"
IF I GO, OR IF I STAY, THE VICTORY IS MINE."
NONE OF US REALLY KNOWS ABOUT TOMORROW,
WE MUST PREPARE TO GO TO HEAVEN ANYDAY
BUT WHILE WE'RE HERE LET'S TRUST THE LORD,
HE'LL LEAD US SAFE TO OUR REWARD
AND BY HIS GRACE, WE'LL BE A WINNER EITHER WAY
I'M A WINNER EITHER WAY, IF I GO OR IF I STAY
FOR I'LL STILL HAVE MY JESUS EACH PASSING DAY
I'LL HAVE MY HEALING HERE BELOW, OR LIFE FOREVER IF I GO
OH PRAISE THE LORD, I'M A WINNER EITHER WAY.
Today marks the first anniversary of the last time Rick was here in our home. He went to the hospital around 5:30 pm I believe and never was well enough to return. This is a very, very emotional day for us. We will always love and miss him as will our friends and our family. This was his song, even before he got sick, but the last time he was at church he testified about this very thing and he was OK with whatever the Lord had in store for him. And while this man sings this song very well, no one will ever sing it like Noots. Noots sang it for him the night he passed away and at his funeral. We will never forget it!
We will never forget and always be grateful for our family, friends, and neighbors who were there for us all during his illness. We will never forget the response to our 911 call for help and how quickly that help arrived.
I love y'all.
