Remembering mom this Christmas with a poem

Remembering Mom this Christmas made me think of the poem Dave and Sheri Rolf shared at mom's service last month.  Sharing it with all of you tonight hoping that God's love and light with shine through you this Christmas.

Wishing you God's Grace, Love and Peace

Laura

Grace—The Chandelier

Grace was

crystals from God’s chandelier

 

helping restless souls

to see themselves

in a better light

 

rainbow prisms

reflecting God’s Glory in Grace

 

Classic

Elegant

Love

 

Grace was a chandelier

that burned with a hidden Sun

 

because her life was

time and again aglow

 

sometimes,

some came

with their dark stairwells…

 

helped through their sadness

with Grace’s shining light

 

a shining chandelier

with faceted teardrops splashing love

 

at Dub’s death

her glow briefly dimmed

in memory of him

 

she said the clock on the wall

has no meaning

but soon she was back gleaming

 

focused on God’s Son

now, becoming a ministry of one

 

doing all that she could do

to help me and you

come to bask in God’s light

 

now Heaven’s chandelier

beams into our lives

 

and the river still flows

life here goes on

 

while Grace is not here

there’s a Light that still shines

casting away all fear

 

a huge sparkling chandelier

lights the past and future

 

and Grace, we will ever

celebrate

that the Light now enshrouds you

 

and ALL you know

is God’s grace, love and peace.

    Thank you Laura for reciting this poem shared by Sheri and Dave Rolf. This crystal from that chandelier continues to shine her light of love, compassion and GRACE on not only each of us but also on you, your brother Steve and his family. Your Dad and Mom truly had a wonderful impact on each of our lives.....they will never be forgotten! Praise be to God!
