Lest anyone think I've forgotten, let me just say that I've refrained from writing or talking much this year on the subject. Although five years certainly eases the sting and the pain, it still amazes me just how vivid the memories of that hospice room can be ... especially at this time of year, especially with the statue of St Michael out. It's not a bad thing. Just very clear pictures in my mind of what everything looked like, what we sang that week, what we prayed, who was there, etc.

Ye meanwhile are in your chambers sleeping,
quiet, and set free from all our weeping;
no cross or sadness
there can hinder your untroubled gladness.

  1. It sure is a vivid memory. Can't believe it's been 5 years... I can still see that hospice room, too. It was sad but beautiful to be singing those great hymns to someone ready to meet his Savior face to face.
