Another Hand

God touched another hand as last breath slipped away. Cradled a loved one’s head as hearts began to pray. God whispered I love you while angels near him stood. Raised his soul to heaven cause He promised He would. God granted his soul peace from life of constant pain. Freed body from struggles and further family strain. God allowed him to love to know all life’s pleasure. But God loves him more than one can ever measure. Copyright © 2011 By Caryl S. Muzzey

Caryl, I have always found comfort in the belief that earthly death is but a transition to eternal life. (Dad said the same thin in his living will and it made it easier for us to unplug the respirator.) You present your thoughts so eloquently here, dear. This goes to my faves. Love, Carolyn
