My Hand In God'sEach morning when I wake I say,
"I place my hand in
With faith and trust that by my side
He'll walk with me, my steps to guide.
He leads me
with the tenderest care,
When paths are dark, and I despair.
No need for me to understand
If I but hold fast to
My hand in His; no surer way
To walk in safety through each day.
By His great bounty I am fed
Warmed by His love, and comforted.
When at day's end I seek my rest,
And realize how much I'm blessed,
pour out to Him and then
I place my hand in God's again.
Services were held at the Kellerton United Methodist Church Thursday, February 22 at 2 p.m., with Rev. Walter ZARR officiating.
Interment was in Maple Row Cemetery, Kellerton. The American Legion presented the American Flag and a wreath of Poppies to
