My father-in-law was a really good man. He lived his whole life serving others, doing the right thing, even when it hurt, going the extra mile just because it was needed. He rescued people, he rescued dogs and cats, he put out fires, he served in the national guard going and doing whatever needed being done. He was a selfless servant. He didn’t ask for much in return. In the 40 plus years I knew him I rarely saw him angry.
When Mary finished her first album her dad looked it over and asked if his favorite song was on it. He loved Mary’s song that she called “Glory”. Mary told him that Glory did not make it on the album because it was more of a Christmas song. His response was a little out of character, he actually got a little miffed and said, “Well then, make a Christmas CD!” At first we scoffed at the thought. The recording process was expensive and time consuming but eventually we came up with a plan and of course we knew whatever else we put on the album, “Glory” had to be among the songs listed.
Harold passed away before the project was finished. We believe because of his faith in Jesus, that he is now experiencing in person, what we can only imagine, the Glory of the great God of the universe. God is a great and powerful and awesome God, but he showed his grace and mercy to us in sending us his son Jesus to die in our place, to pay for our sin which separates us from God.
