"The Broken Chain By Ron Tranmer We little knew the day that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you But you didnt go alone. For part of us went with you The day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories. Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again. Janet Hofbauer"
"The day God called you home God looked around his garden And He found an empty place. He then looked down upon this earth, And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest. Gods 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 that the road was getting rough. And the hills are hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered Peace be thine. It broke our hearts to lose you But you didnt go alone For part of us went with you That day that God called you home Janet Hofbauer"
"How Grateful I Would Be to Just Have One More Day By Kathy J. Parenteau If I could have just one more day and wishes did come true, Id spend every glorious moment side by side with you. Recalling all the years we shared and memories we made, how grateful I would be to have just one more day. Where the tears Ive shed are not in vain and only fall in bliss, so many things Id let you know about the days youve missed. I wouldnt have to make pretend you never went away, how grateful I would be to have just one more day. When that day came to a close and the sun began to set, a million times Id let you know I never will forget. The heart of gold you left behind when you entered Heavens gate, how grateful I would be to have just one more day. Janet Hofbauer"
"John 6: 35-40 Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away; For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day. Janet Hofbauer"
"High Flight By John Gillespie Magee, Jr Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward Ive climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds, and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hovring there, Ive chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . . Up, up the long, delirious burning blue Ive topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace Where never lark, or ever eagle flew And, while with silent, lifting mind Ive trod The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God. Janet Hofbauer"
If only we could see the splendour of the land
To which our loved ones are called from you and me
If only we could hear the welcome they receive
From old familiar voices all so dear
We would not grieve
If only we could know the reason why they went
Wed smile and wipe away the tears that flow
And wait content.
