All Soul's Day

As we go through our own battles in life, as we laugh and celebrate our own triumphs, take a moment to pause and offer a prayer to our beloved loved ones who have passed.

God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.

In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.

Waiting Game....

Here we go again,
Playing this game.
Mind game.
Waiting game.
Aren’t you tired of this?  
I think I am.
