when we least expect it,
we have little reminders of those we have lost
Reminders that make us remember and smile, and appreciate
the beauty that was not lost
but that is just now hidden
from our view
that emerge from the ground in the Spring
these memories emerge from our hearts and we remember
those who are never forgotten
and appreciate the beauty of their presence in our lives
even though they aren’t seen in full view.
souls are eternal
And ….Easter…is not just a Holiday
It’s a reality of Resurrected Life
Little blue forget-me-nots
not only make the remembering sweet,
but give me hope that what seems gone forever,
like the forget-me-nots over a long winter,
will emerge with a trumpet sound
and their life is Eternal.
Just a few thoughts as I think of those who have gone on before us this past year. Missing some very much and feeling for others who I know have lost deeply cared for loved ones. I love the way God speaks in the ‘little things’, like little blue ‘forget-me-nots’ covering the grass in the Spring.
