"On Eagle's WingsYou who dwell in the shelter of the LordWho abide in His shadow for lifeSay to the Lord, ""My refuge, my rock in whom I trust!""And He will raise you up on eagles' wingsBear you on the breath of dawnMake you to shine like the sunAnd hold you in the palm of His handThe snare of the fowler will never capture you And famine will bring you no fearUnder His wings your refuge, His faithfulness your shieldAnd He will raise you up on eagles' wingsBear you on the breath of dawnMake you to shine like the sunAnd hold you in the palm of His hand"

At this time, we open the space for guests here today to share a memory. This can be a story or memory that makes you smile or is special to you.If we were all together today this would be like raising your hand and passing the microphone around the room. So if you would like to publicaly share please raise your hand.There are two ways to raise your hand. First is to use the raise your hand feature in Zoom. To do this click on participants and then the raise hand icon is in the bottom left of the participants panel. Or, we invite you to can do this the old fashion way and wave your hand in the video, our staff will call on you by name and ask you to unmute your microphone.You can also share here, in the chat. The chat will be shared with the family as a virtual guestbook.
