In this Mourning

BY: RuthW

in-this-mourning-prayerThe hardest part was standing vigil,
shaking clammy hands,
kissing mascara-strewn cheeks,
all of us trying to find words of comfort.
Help me feel the warmth
in every covered dish and bouquet of carnations.
Platitudes and pat answers don't help me.  
The only thing I seek is Your presence.
All I ask of my friends is to be there.  
Mourning passes as life goes on
in slow motion, their absence palpable,
but I find comfort in the time we had.
Grant me strength in my sorrow,
and bring my loved one home into your eternal care.

Today's Spiritual Quote
Limited as we are to our steadily aging bodies, we find it fascinating that angels can take any form that suits the message. A "classic" angel, with wings and all lighted up, perhaps with pale skin and eyes of blue flame, seems to be less often glimpsed than do angels in the guise of ordinary folks of all sorts--male or female, young or old, tall or short, any race, any dialect, any description. end quote
