Good Bye

I was struggling this morning to come up with something relevant and meaningful to post.  My brain is having a hard time focusing through the sadness.  I turned to my book of quotes and inspirational sayings hoping for some inspiration and turned to the following.  It seemed fitting today...

God hath not promised skies always blue,
     flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God hath not promised sun without rain,
     day without sorrow, peace without pain.

But God hath promised strength for the day,
     rest for the labor, light for the way,
Grace for the trials, help from above,
     unfailing sympathy, undying love...

RIP Tanna and may God's peace and strength be wrapped around you, Kingsburys.  Tanna was truly the most special and courageous young woman I had the privilege to know.  She left this world far too early and will be greatly missed.  Heaven has acquired a truly remarkable angel!


  1. A beautiful poem, Karin. My sisters and I are struggling as we see our mom decline. Although mom is much older than young Tanna, the wonderful message in the poem is deeply felt.

  2. I'm so sorry about your mom, Bill. I will pray for strength and peace for you and all. It is a beautiful poem. I've found myself turn to it often since first coming upon it when my grandma passed away 20+ years ago. Thanks for stopping by!
