So, today we ask?
What is life?
……….Life is but a resting place,
A Pause in what’s to be.
A resting place along the road.
To sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys
Different paths along the way.
We all were meant to learn some things
But never meant to stay….
Our destination is a place.
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey is quicker
For some the journey’s slow.
And when the journey finally ends
We’ll claim a great reward
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord….
A private service to be held at a later date.
