This was the church where my daddy preached from the end of my kindergarten year to the the end of second grade. Lawton OKlahoma. When I walked into the sanctuary on our Daughter of a Preacher Man tour (what seemed like a hundred years later) all the memories of those brief years came rushing back...or forward...
When I was a little girl, the song 'In the Sweet by and by' was one of my favorites. I think because the tune held the promise of finding family and forgiveness and redemption and all things better in the after life. I do not know if I believe that my people will be welcoming me once I "cross over", but I would like to believe that at some point in this life time - in this here and now - there can be peace and forgiveness and that there will be no more sorrow, only joy in the sweet by and by.
