Etta James died today and I want to write a bit about her. Etta is a woman who had a very hard life which through some bad choices of her own, became worse. She was raised in a Christian home but not by her own parents. I am sure she was prayed for and many wanted to see her live her life for Christ. She started out a gospel singer in the church choir. The end of her life was her husband and sons battling over her 1 million dollar estate. Sad and tumultuous was her life. Many of you can say the same. Your life will have problems and your heart will be troubled. However, Jesus never leaves us and it is His peace He wants to give us. (John 14:27)
Etta is best known for her song At Last and the funny thing about that is I love that song so much I imagine me singing it to Jesus. It is my prayer that Etta got to sing that to Jesus today.
