Remembering God's Grace

The calmness settles in now
with acceptable disquietness
as we return to living life
with one less earthly vessel
dwelling lovingly among us.  

Silence reigning for moments
as our minds and spirits search
for solace in numbing grief
while shadows from the past
run a perpetual playback
of memories, now bittersweet.

In the stillness of this new day
may we find peaceful comfort
as our feet search for stable
ground and our hearts struggle
with our own personal storms

Remembering God’s grace
and Dad's stepping stone of Faith


I wrote this for my family this morning after we layed my father-in-law to rest yesterday.  Such a faithful man in Christ.  His earthly presence will be missed, but his memories will forever be with us.
