God's gift of time

Words are so powerful to me. I received a really nice card in the mail and the words perfectly describe how I'm feeling. I wanted to share them in case they could be helpful to you, too, as we are all mourning the loss of Mark.

We all need a time to grieve-
quiet time for reflection
to sift through memories
and come to grips
with what has happened.

We all need a time for tears,
not for the one who is now
at peace in heaven,
but for ourselves as we realize
that things will never be the same.

We all need a time to just "be,"
when we can open ourselves to God
and let the reassurance
of His everlasting love
start to heal our broken hearts.
