In Celebration of a Life Deeply Loved 02

“I’m Free”

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free. I’m following the path God laid out for me. I took His hand when I heard him call. I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. I found that peace at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss. Ah yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I savored much; Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief. Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me. God wanted me now, He set me Free!

    • Hi Elizabeth, well it is 5:30 am and I have a moment on the computer before going to work. But alas, I will figure out how to “stop by and collect my Versatile Blogger award.” I am very excited and want to thank you. I have one more busy week at work, and then I should be posting away…ha ha. I have a lot of catching up with old posts from my blogging friends, and plenty of comments to issue…..oh yes, new art to create and posts to write. Whew, I need to get on my bike as well and put in some miles. Sounds like I need to create a to do list 🙂
      And when I get focused, I would like to submit answers to your questions for consideration for the get to know a blogger selection.
      Thanks
      Walter
