"There Will Be a Day"
I have partnered with WCIC as a volunteer for over 6 years. Since relocating here to Bloomington, IL in 2005, I have personally lost two uncles (one from each side of the family); a dear friend from our previous church in WI who provided my wife and I with support, encouragement, and compassion during our own personal struggles; a mentor of mine for almost 20 years and WWII veteran who was imprisoned and escaped and wrote his own book; my own spouse and mother of our 2 wonderful children, Brianna and Jeremiah; the son of my kids' adopted grandmother from Trinity Lutheran church who passed away 1 1/2 yrs prior to wife's passing, and now that same adopted grandmother who also adopted me as her son, ALL to terminal cancer. Just a month ago, I also lost my own mother to a respiratory disease.
Every time I hear the song "There Will Be a Day" and also "I Can Only Imagine," I am reminded about the precious memories left behind by each of these servants of Christ (one may not have been) and the legacy that they have left. I am brought to tears of both sorrow and joy whenever these songs are played on air. It becomes an opportunity each time to remember that one day, all our pain and suffering will end when we meet Jesus in eternity.
WCIC also provided me with the opportunity to share my story on air as a promo to Sharathon 6 months after losing my wife. The prayer warriors through WCIC have prayed for my family numerous times as we strive to overcome the challenges that this journey called life tosses at us.
THANK YOU WCIC
