A place of perfect rest
Free of calamity
Of wars and pestilence
Where peace weds discontent
No more unhappiness
God’s sweet serenity
Will bring true blessedness
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
“He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire.”
Won’t it be wonderful there?

Having sat beside the bedside of a beloved church member as she crossed into heaven this past Thursday night, your poem and Scripture express the sense of joy at her release from a body racked by cancer and Alzheimer’s. Beautiful words and photos. By the way, it’s good to see your blogs, again!
Thanks Chuck. I’m still posting rather infrequently. I do what I can in lieu of continued problems tolerating computers. Praying that it gets better soon!
And sorry about your loss, but it sounds like she is finally home!
