Awaken Your Soul

From personal experience I am watching my friend prepare for death. This has opened my eye to the reality of loss. Tears will fly and my heart will melt, I am sure.

Death Does Come

Light souls have vanished,
due to the call of God....
open your hearts right now
and be ready.

When your heart is heavy
release your burdens to
the Almighty.

Flowers for the dead
is backwards.
How can a cadaver
appreciate them?
The living are offering
a gift for themselves.

Where were they when
sorrow touched their

Love gifts for the
whole year is best.

Mourn for the lost
souls and lift your
head high with respect.

Honor the living
and wait til your
turn comes up.

Fright is of no

Death is a natural
code of life.

Put smiles and joy
on your faces, that
is what God wants.

Cheating in this life
has no promise.

Award God for all his
The Holy Spirit will
guide you if you
release your fears.

Peace is what the Holy
Spirit brings.



God, Hallelujah, Soul

Touching thoughts Verna, during this time of grief. How to bid goodbye is really tough. Yes, we have to do all within our capacity to soothe our near and dear than rise after they have parted - siva

Hi Verna. Great to see you. I read your messages to me many weeks too late when I regained a computer again. Cheer up, my friend. Death is merely life turned inside out.

I know those of us that know when we leave earth we go to a better place and yet after saying that. This still does not take the pain away as we see the one we love suffer. My heart and prayers go out to you, your friend and all those that surround y'all. Bless you my friend. As always, thank you for sharing.:)
