DYING AS WE SEE FITS

November 6, 2016

WE WILL REMEMBER DECEMBER 21, 2016  National Day of Remembrance for those who have died who were in an unsafe place and who we call to come home CITY AND COUNTY BUILDING EAST Steps 5:30 PM  Candlelight Vigil

DYING AS WE SEE FITS

  • There are those who talk about everything except the person who died.
  • There are those who talk only about the person who died.
  • There are those who make you feel like laughing 
  • There are those who say nothing at all because they are already aware of the meaning and depth of the sorrow of the loss of the person who died.

WHAT WE LOSE WHEN WE LOSE SOMEONE WHO WE LOVED IS MORE THAN A CHANCE TO REMEMBER HONOR  CHERISH THE MEMORY OF THOU WHO MADE US FEEL WHOLE

but more to return to a promise that we were longing to feel hold remember of the gift of the other in our lives

there is a special place of sanctuary desire freeing one to be safe and feel swaddled in loving arms that hold you as long as you breathe as long as you can  hold the person keep safe warm poised for another day of travails

It is a great gift to feel comforted safe as a child helped to grow and nurture every secret garden in their mansion of the heart it is a special place coveted by all to feel blessed by those who love you to such a degree that you know who you are and where you belong

Tonight we honor the embers of the fire that rise up and vanish in heaven of the prayer of the presence of the other in our lives

we revere that sacrifice honing finite gifts that were bestowed at every turn wherever we went and how ever we have lived

we are reminded of the beauty grace dignity of being loved as the hands holding the heart grounded in the sense that we all have a place from which we emanate a womb a sacred place that nurtured us when we were vulnerable.

That we have risen as smoke dissipating in the foggy night we are still held close coddled worshipped by loving arms that reach out and long for us to return. Here we part the living and the dead knowing that our turn will come.  but not today.  not today not now now now    hush   in silent homage to those who have left.
