Not only did I grow up with Genee’ and Stacey as my neighbors, I babysat for Shaunte and Tanisha. Years later, we both found it funny and ironic that we were pregnant with Spencer and Dausen at the same time. Stacey had a heart of gold, and was always willing to step in and help a friend in need! The last time I spoke with her, we were watching our boys play football, against each other, and she was so incredibly proud of Dausen and how well he was playing! Looking back, I wish I would have spent more time with her that afternoon! I do know that our hearts were in check and we were both there for the same reason! She loved her children / grandchildren without end, and was always there to root and cheer them on! Rest In Peace, Girl... I know I will someday see you again!

I Will Arise

Lyrics by Joseph Hart in Hymns Composed on Various Subjects (1759);

Music, "Arise", from William Walker's Southern Harmony and Musical Companion (1835)

1. Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity joined with pow'r.

Refrain: I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.

2. Come, ye needy, come, and welcome,
God's free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Every grace that brings you nigh.


3. Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
Bruised and broken by the fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all.


4. Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.
