As the winter set in, the summer in my heart sing spring
The bell tolls but for whom
For the one who placed seasons in me
As the dawn breaks, she wakes up with me in my thoughts
Who is she? She is, for whom the bell tolls
As the day progress and noise increases
She comes and calms my nerves
For her the bell tolls
Seasons of life has withered her
But she resists the withering of others
She germinates hope
For her the bell tolls
The one who lives and the one who gives
I pray, I plead, when I die
Time slips away

I cry out to this senseless universe
Longing to hold in my hands
One last moment when life
Was as I knew it
You were here with me...

Left behind unsaid
Unlittered by this cancerous evil...
If I had known
I'd drench us in joy
Hold every second in
The palm of my hand
Played in all the colors
Drowning us in joy... (more)
I know all of us have struggled with losing someone we love dearly. Some more then others. I found this and thought there was great comfort in these words. I hope they have the same effect on you. Love never dies, it lives in our memories forever. How could it be that someone who was part of your soul just disappears? Life is energy. Love is life. There is no way to put out energy, so therefore it follows that love is eternal also.

Where am I? Fuzzy. Everything is fuzzy, foggy. The lights are harsh, but someone’s voice is telling me to go slow. Why? Whose voice is it? She – I think it’s a she – is telling me something about keeping the lights low, but they are nearly blinding me. Me. Who am I? Reston. Am I Reston? So fuzzy, so hard to remember – what? Things? Time? I am so weak, my head feels so heavy, my arms, I can hardly lift them.
Reston. Matthew Reston. Where am I? She has returned. She is wearing some kind of blue shirt, tunic, what’s it called? She tells me her name is Min Hwa, tells me she is... (more)
This has been a sad month for my husband and me. We have lost three friends in the past four weeks or so. Three people full of life and wonder and vitality. Where their energy has gone, no one can comprehend. I am reminded of the preciousness of life.
We are all buffeted by the tide, often surrounded by circumstances beyond our understanding or control. Yet life remains beautiful, offering us moments of beauty and contemplation at unexpected times and in unexpected places. Thank goodness for those times when visions of natural beauty quiet the mind and heart and give solace.Like... (more)
"Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted." Matt 5:4What a paradox! We think of grief and happiness as being mutually exclusive. In fact, even in Christian circles, we are often taught that the Christian always has a smile on his face and a song in his heart. We are told that to be sad is sinful, that grief represents a lack of faith, and that pain comes from sinful living. Yet, this teaching is directly contrary to what Jesus is saying here.Let's look for a moment at the word "mourn." In the Greek it means to grieve a loss. This may be the loss of a loved one, but it may be... (more)
