10. Tea Timeless was written in memory of Lacy Miller who was kidnapped and murdered in January of 2003.This was a terrible tragedy for Lacy’s family & friends & many others who read about it in the newspaper. I wrote this song after the common phrase “Tea Time” because Lacy loved to have tea parties with her friends and now those memories for her family & friends are timeless - hence the name, “Tea Timeless.”
The song is joyful and happy (like her life) until the end when the song becomes quiet and peaceful. Even though Lacy went through a terrible experience, I believe that angels were beside her to take her home and that Lacy had God’s peace when she left the earth at the end of her time here.
One night at work I splashed boiling water all over my chest (wearing a T-shirt). They ran cold water over me as I laid on my back on a cement floor. I had a total peace inside from God’s presence (while the workers who looked on were horrified). This is one reason I believe that in spite of Lacy’s experience at the end, the presence of God was with her and she had the “perfect peace that goes beyond all human understanding” (Philippians 4:7) before she left this earth.
When no other person was around to help Lacy, I believe that God gave her a peace that goes beyond our ability to describe and that she went through the doorway of death into a place where there is “...No more sorrow, pain, or death.” Revelation 21:4
I look forward to meeting her someday for the first time.
