Strength From Above

I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, with which I'll never part. God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart.


I received my dad's cremains today. I've sat and held them while praying and crying. I'm sure I'll do that again and again. Although my heart misses him now and will forever, he's in Heaven and in the arms of God. He is happy, healthy, and whole. I'm so thankful that I serve a loving merciful God and I know where I want to spend eternity. I can only imagine the beauty and peacefulness!

Thank you again for all the prayers and thoughts. My sister and I, the grandchildren and our husbands are all going to be just fine. Easier days are ahead.

  6. Thank you to all of you sweet sweet ladies for your prayers and kind thoughts. I did not write this poem, but it sure is beautiful isn't it? It just fit my mood when I read it and I wanted to share it with you. I'm coping well and feeling more peaceful everyday.
