We can only imagine...

Several months ago I put the link to Mercy Me's "I Can Only Imagine" video on Anna's website.  It's a song about Heaven and the video features well-known people holding pictures of their loved ones who have died.    Richard heard that Mercy Me was asking for "regular" people to send in their own pictures that they could use during their live concerts.  These pictures will scroll across the big screen while they sing "I Can Only Imagine" at the Rock and Worship Roadshow.  Yesterday Jacob's friend took our picture.  Richard kept saying "Don't smile! and then, "Okay, smile a little"... which may explain our expressions.
So if you attend the concert in OKC, be sure to look for us and if you have a similar photo of your family, you can send it to imagine@mercyme.org

Beautiful picture. Made me tear up and smile. I think it is perfect. Sad because you miss her, smiling because you know you will one day have her in your arms again, forever. God bless your beautiful family.

what a beautiful family! Thank you for sharing your heart, and your sweet Anna with us! You have no idea how much your transparent lives and pain have mentored to me and my faith.
God Bless You for your faithfulness to Him!

At first I spotted the picture-it made me tear up. Then I read the explanation-and smiled. Thanks for sharing.
And, my daughter instructed me to be sure and tell Will that Diary of a Wimpy Kid #4 is out and is called Dog Days(?). But she said that a couple of months ago, so-sorry Will, I just remembered. Old age, you see.
