Hello friends, many of you know that I am not a writer, in fact I am terribly uncomfortable writing things for my blog. And many of you know I moved to a new state this past year, and it was crazy I have to admit.  So, why I am I blabbing about this? Well, the words below came to mind when I was putting together a photo table in my new living room.  I am so thankful to have space to put a lot of family pictures about the house.  I have them all up and down the stairway and 2 tabletops are full, and I have frames scattered about.  I know most people have pictures, so what's the big deal?  Well, with 5 of us sort of crammed into our old house, I didn't have a lot of room for photos, without it looking terribly cluttered. Anyway, I decided to risk embarrassment and put the words here. 
An attempt at poetry.
~Into The Light~


It was all quiet in the room, when the day had ended and night fell, 
the trees still and bare, in the winters light. 
She carefully placed the table, perfectly under the window, 
arranging each frame, each family, lovingly on the tabletop. 
She secretly wished they were all there, everyone. 

She lights a small candle and sets it next to the smiles that are missing.
Sorrow and grief have been replaced,
 with faith and solace, for within their treasured faces 
shines a reminder of an everlasting promise. 

It is there in the quiet of the night, 
one candle lights the darkness.
It is there in the calm of the night, 
she felt the reassurance and safety, and peace,
that she desired. 
And somehow she knew, she knows,
that it is all true.

What awaits will have no pain, no suffering,
no worry, no guilt,
only love and light.
And the smiles of treasured souls awaiting.
Welcoming. Light. Love.
