Peace that Passes Understanding

I am not a hymn loving girl.  I never really liked the style of hymn growing up.  Don't get me wrong.  The lyrics mean more to me than anything but the melody just isn't my style.  There is one hymn that I am attracted to though.  Here are the lyrics and I will explain the rest later.

It Is Well with My Soul

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll;

Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,

It is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,

It is well, it is well, with my soul.

I really love this song.  It is one of my favorites.  Today, my great aunt went to be with the Lord.  When I saw the message from my mom, I had a surrounding peace around me.  It was like the whole room filled with God's arms hugging me.  She lived a great life.  I hope that I will be able to live a life as long and full as hers.  She had many great grandkids.  I hope that the Lord will allow me to see great grandkids.  I am now grieving more for my grandmother.  She was her sister.  I hope that my grandmother feels those same arms of Jesus hugging her.  I want her to realize that it is well with her soul.  I am sure she already has that peace.  She is a strong believer.  I hope to be like my granny someday.  I really need to go to bed but feel like sharing now.  I hope everyone goes to bed tonight with feelings of peace.  Rest in God's presence. 

It is well with my soul...
