LOOK FOR ME FOR I WILL BE THERE TOO


Sam, Rusty, Howard and Vestal Goodman, known as the Happy Goodmans were a gospel singing group. Vestal is known for her powerful vioce. In this video, Rusty's daughter sings a song written by her Daddy who died of cancer in 1990. Sam died in 1991. She reachs out to touch Howard's hand when she sings this and you know they are both thinking of joining Rusty and Sam in Heaven one day. Sweet and touching. You don't have to be a Christian to be touched by this song, but if you are saved, it isn't a sad song at all. It is a beautiful reminder of that day when we shall all see Jesus and our family's once again.

Verse
When you finally make your entrance to that city
Of jasper walls and bright golden avenues
As you behold all its beauty and its splendor
Remember there’s just one request I make of you

Chorus
Look for me for I will be there too
I realize when you arrive there will be so much to view
After you’ve been there ten thousand years
A million, maybe two
Look for me, for I will be there too

Verse
As you go down your list of firsts there’s no question
We’re gonna have to see our loved ones, me and you
And when you feel you’ve shared your story with the last one
Who wants to hear just how you made it through

Chorus
Look for me for I will be there too
I realize when you arrive there will be so much to view
After you’ve been there ten thousand years
A million, maybe two
Look for me for I will be there too

Look for me for I will be there too
I will be there to

Great lyrics! It will be amazing, to say the least, to have no more sense of time. I think that's one of the things I don't like about this life now. Time goes so fast, and people change. I don't like seeing loved ones get weaker.
But we DO have GOD, who NEVER changes!
Love, Debra
PS I haven't forgotten you at all. Sorry I haven't visited in a while!

Thanks for posting this video and including the story along with it. Brings back wonder memories!

I loved to watch the Goodman's on Tammy's house party years ago.

When we all get to Heaven,
What a day of rejoicing that will be!
When we all see Jesus,
We’ll sing and shout the victory!
Blessings!!
