Here's a song I penned after attending the funeral of a dear friend from my government job--Jeannie Baker. Jeannie, this is for you.
Death is like a mirror, it shows on your face
What you’ve done for others, how you’ve shown His grace.
I want my life to reflect the goodness He’s shown me,
So when others see me, they’ll see Him.
A friend of mine lay stately in a coffin made by man--
Framed by satin, scented with roses.
Her face was a reflection to those standing ‘round.
Of the deeds she’d done and the kindness shown.
Now when my life is through, what will it be--
A reflection of Jesus, or just me?
The mirror of my life will show who He is
And who I am in Him.
