There are many trials in this life that we must all face. With the passing of Joey Feek on March 4, 2015, the world lost a true angel. Rory and their daughter have had someone with them, who was truly a rare individual – an Angel here on Earth.
Behind the scenes of “When I’m Gone” recording. Rory wasn’t allowed to sing on this taping. He did NOT like that! It broke his heart, even then, at the thought of losing Joey. . . Little did they know, at the time of the recording, this would be a message from Joey that Rory would need over and over and over again.
It’s truly amazing to see how God works in everyone’s life, especially in Joey and Rory’s life. The fact that God presented this song for Joey and Rory to do, before she was diagnosed with cancer is unreal. It is heart wrenching to think that Joey is gone, and that we won’t get to hear her beautiful voice anymore, but God makes everything work for the better. Joey got her wish to see Christ. She is using her beautiful talents for the Lord in Heaven! I’m praying for Rory as this new transition will go smoothly and go accordingly to how God planned it. Both Joey and Rory are great examples to how we all should be living as children of God (individually), as spouses, and as parents.
Through a total fluke this evening, I came across this short documentary on the making of the the song and video, “When I’m Gone.” As you are now aware, Joey was not diagnosed with cancer until sometime after both of these video’s were shot. It is truly a shame that she had not turned to proven alternative methods, or she would have been with us for many years to come – but then she always will be – in spirit.
This entry has been posted under the category heading, ‘Ultimate Victory.’ Was Joey victorious over cancer? No – but she has been rewarded with THE Ultimate Victory. As you did in life sweet Angel – Sing in Peace in Heaven.
We have been blessed.
