This is one of my favorite old hymns, too. What a beautiful picture of celebration memorial service.
A very smooth transformation of Marie's attitude, well done. Nice story.
After such a hectic day...the ending was such a delight; even though it was a funeral. The song was perfect for the ending of a life, of a busy day. The words "I'll Fly Away" bring such peace and serenity. Very nicely done.
You painted their your MC's sadness and frustration well. It's ironic that it took a funeral to cheer her up.
Beautifully written. I love the hymn you used.
How can a story about a funeral feel up-lifting? Well, this one did, and inspiring,too! Thanks for sharing it.
A sad, yet semi-inspirational story. Good job!
Interesting how our focus can change in an instant once we learn of something that out weighs our current circumstances. I can see why you chose the title and the song. Allison Krause does such a wonderful job with it as did you with your story.
I love the message in this story. You did a wonderful job!
Great writing. Enjoyed the presentation and story. God bless.
This article is just amazing. Very well written and such a great message. Now I'm going to go play 'I'll Fly Away' on my flute.
LOVE IT! "Fly-Away," always makes me think of my mom, it was one of her favorite hymns.
Well done, Angela! I'd like to feature this one for the week of December 10th. Look for it on the FW Home Page.
Beautiful writing, Angela! It encouraged me today. Congrats on being the FW Showcase frontpage writer!
Such a well-written piece, Angela. Congrats on being chosen for the Member showcase this week.
So much of the time I feel like Marie did in the beginning of your story. Thanks for the smiles and the tears.
Oh Angela this is just lovely~ What an encouraging break from the usual heaviness of our losses. Did my spirit good this morning.
