I am so grateful for YOU reading this passage, watching our video and listening to this beautiful duet between my biological father, Billy Masters and me, Lauren Larken (Spees) Scuderi. Find handwritten sheet music below. Also thanks to Kelly Willard, for helping Face to Face to be published in the Maranatha! Songbook.
Face to Face is also Susie’s favourite song, Billy’s Mama, my grandmother. We sang it many times while she played the piano. I sang it at her funeral in the Spring of 2017. I know she and Bill are Face to Face in heaven with Nana and Pop-up, Evie, Catherine, Paul Backer, all of our loved ones are our “Mighty Cloud of Witnesses” who are our Guardian Angels!
These lyrics come from the Bible verses about being Face to Face with Jesus in Exodus 33
11 The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend…
14 The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
In a world like ours with ceaseless streams of information, content and possibilities as well as work, tasks and daily routines; the promise of rest is so helpful.
Also I think that looking at ourselves in the mirror we are able to see a glimpse of the work God is doing in our lives.
On a personal note, people often see me and cannot believe how much I resemble my biological Dad, my Mom, my Aunt, and how my behavior models after my adoptive Father. We are reflections for each other of the work God is doing through us.
