God’s Garden

Today was my Nana’s funeral, I picked out and read a poem that was so fitting. I am going to leave the poem for you all to read today. I will be back tomorrow to catch you all up on my weekend!

God’s Garden
God looked around his garden And He found an empty place. And then He looked down upon the earth, And saw your tired face. He put His arms around you, And lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain, He knew that you would never Get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough, And the hills were hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids, And whispered”Peace be thine.” It broke our hearts to lose you. But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. ~author unknown

    That is such a beautiful poem, it made me cry. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. But I know your Nana is watching over you now with so much love and pride. You and your family are in my prayers.
