Last week I attended the funeral of my uncle, JR Dishman. Uncle JR was the oldest brother of my father, Charles Dishman. JR was a husband, father, grandfather, deacon, follower of Jesus and a country bluegrass gospel singer. He taught himself the guitar as an adult and played and sang ever since. His funeral was filled with family and friends. JR seemed to have a handle on the important things in life.
I have an album of his songs which I’ve listened to over and over and even shared at Cru venues. I always appreciated my Uncle JR and I know that he now resides in Glory, with his brothers and parents and family members and friends. I found myself thinking during the funeral that I’m looking forward to joining them someday.
I share one of his songs for you to enjoy. In your busy day I hope you can listen, consider the eternity described here and ask, do I have a handle on the important things in life?
