In the midst of uncertainty, confusion and loss
this picture depicts a simple beauty that still remains.
The only explanation I can find is that
she has made deposits into her spiritual well being.
She has filled her mind with hymns and spiritual songs
from the time she was a youth,
from before I was born,
and they remain as a final blessing to her now.
As I sat beside her last Sunday, singing the following hymn,
I asked her if she was enjoying this.
Her responses to other things may not always make sense,
but her response now was,
"Who wouldn't like that song?"
So ... for that reason I have to share it.
