I have always loved music, through singing or listening to it. I played the organ and piano in church services. Because I played these instruments, I memorized many hymns. I also gave piano lessons. One of the hymns was "Lift Me up above the Shadows," a beautiful hymn by Herbert Buffman. Although I did not play it often, one day the song was impressed on my mind. Like a broken record, it played over and over. I would find myself singing it. This happened several days before my husband died. God was using it to prepare me for what was ahead, and I believe also to let me know He would be with me and guide me.
