It is a sad time for friends, family, and fans of Joey Feek as she prepares to leave this world after a tough battle with cervical cancer. The husband and wife duo Joey + Rory have captured the love and sympathy of the country music world as they have opened up their life during these extremely tragic times.
Rory Feek has been documenting the journey on his blog and recently released a video he made as a tribute to his brave wife as she lays in a “deep sleep” in her final days on this earth.
The song, “In The Time That You Gave Me”, playing in the video was not included on any of the albums the duo have released.
“We recorded a song a few years ago by Shawn Camp and Dennis Morgan for the same album that we recorded “When I’m Gone” on, but it didn’t make the record,” Rory wrote in a Feb. 29 blog post.
“I think maybe it was on some special bonus version somewhere, but for the most part nobody’s ever heard it. I came across it the other day and put some of Joey’s photos with it… I could barely listen or watch at first. But then, as I listened and watched more… I smiled more and I cried less. In the time that God gave her… I believe Joey’s given all she could give. She’s loved all she could love and lived all she could live. And her faith… yes, it’s strong enough to save her. I know she’s done Him and all of us proud… in the time that He gave her.”
Watch the emotional video below. Our prayers go out to the Feek family during this heartbreaking time.
