We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord...

I Thessalonians 4: 17

I shot this picture on October 27th, 2011, the day after my mother passed away...I didn't feel like going anywhere, but my husband and I had made prior plans to go to a church lutefisk supper and I am glad that we went because I captured these beautiful clouds out the window of our car on the way.

Below are the words to a song that my mother composed several years ago.

That Grand Reunion Far Beyond the Sky
© By Helen L. Aspseter

1. There is a land so fair, beyond compare,
beside the crystal sea.
'Tis where my loved ones wait for me
with the Christ of Galilee.
There are mothers, fathers,
sisters, brothers,
children sweet and pure.
For you they're waiting,
so be faithful and endure.

...Chorus...
Oh that happy shore
Sorrows are no more
Saints, Christ's blood atoned,
gather 'round God's throne.
I'm looking forward
to that Grand Reunion
far beyond the sky,
Where I shall see my Lord
and loved ones by and by.

2. Oh, mothers, fathers place your children
in your Master's tender care,
Where every burden He will share;
and your sorrows help you bear.
Although the storms of life
do gather 'round you,
Trust your dearest friend.
For Christ your Savior,
will be with you
to the end....
