Time to go home and get some food. I have to be back here for music practice tonight, then later on be back here again for evening prayers.
We came across a cool poem she wanted read at her funeral, and so I've included that in the service.
See if you find your own words in there someplace.
Donâ€™t grieve for me, from pain Iâ€™m free.
Iâ€™m following the path
God has laid, you see.
I took His hand when I heard His call
I turned around and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found the peace on a sunny day,
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joys.
A family shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My lifeâ€™s been full, Iâ€™ve savoured much,
Good family, good times,
A loved oneâ€™s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Donâ€™t lengthen it now with undue grief,
Lift up your hearts, and peace to thee
God wanted me now;
From pain Iâ€™m free.
