Reality

“Charlie died this morning,”
These are all too common comments;
All around everyday
Someone falls- sent to hospital,
Someone transferred to nursing home-
This is a retirement community

This is life’s reality
 Resign,
Retire,
Refocus,
Reduce,
Relinquish
Relocate,

Charlie had a place to live;
There was loving care
All around every where
Someone was picked up after fall
Around the clock care available
Comfort and meals on call

This is a good life for the living
Rethink
Reevaluate
Reeducate
Restore
Rejoice
Reverence

Death-the common denominator – all ages
In disease; in war; in violence; alone or not
The silent enemy of earthly life
The glorious gift of the saint
“Death has been swallowed up in victory”*
Redeemed
                       -Evelyn Pearl Carpenter Anderson
 *Isaiah 25:8
