In the Early Morning Rain
She was dressed in yellow and blue
a fair sky in spring
He kissed her fully on the lips
like he did everything
No half-hearted efforts
his hard-working heart of gold
he’d press on for his lady-love
until he was too old
A hand on their metal gate
he turned to wave goodbye
He’d carry her smile within his breast
before returning to her side
In the early morning rain
she went to find some flowers
Her frailness battered by the breeze
and soaked to skin with showers
When he found her in the garden
with a halo round her head
where silver hair had spilled about
he knew that she was dead
Such sweet peace had settled
upon her, now, pain-free brow
He knew she’d entered Heaven’s gate
where naught could hurt her now.

Heavenly Blessings ~ Wendy
While letting my little dog out,
early one morning,
I noticed the rain-drenched irises as I passed by the rock garden.
Later when the sun came out I headed straight to the flowers with my camera.

Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep,
or to grieve like the rest of men,
who have no hope.
We believe that Jesus died and rose again
and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus
those who have fallen asleep in him…
Therefore encourage each other with these words.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-15 & 18 NIV
