I love this poem found on the back of a memorial card so I am copying it for you:
God looked around His garden and found an empty place.
He looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful; He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering; He knew that you were in pain.
He knew that you would never get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough; and the hills were hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered "Peace be thine".
It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn't go alone for part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
Today is the First Friday of the month and dedicated to the love of the Heart of Jesus. He so loves us, but he also longs for us to love him in return. Let us try to remember today to tell Jesus often how much his love for us means to each of us.
