Today I bid farewell to Connie, a lovely person, a sweet acquaintance and a dear neighbour. In her memory I lit a candle and wrote this poem which I share here...
Today I lit a candle For someone I hardly knew, From what I've learned today of her She was one of a chosen few. With her kind and gentle smile, A silent wave, a nod, With a quiet disposition, She was a virtuous woman of God.
I'd have loved to have known you better Yet your silence and example says all, It seems you were so well prepared And always ready for your call. In your memory I light this candle That we may never be apart For in your passing to eternal life, Your light will shine within our heart.
If you click on the candle above, you will be taken to a lovely site where you can light your own candle and spend some quiet time.
Hi I'm Doreen, welcome to my blogging world!
I hope you will visit often to share the ideas and moments in my creative and writing adventures.
Being creative is just so much a part of me...I love to do all kinds of crafts, redecorate, recycle, paint, write poetry and stories and I also enjoy taking pictures. There is so much around us that inspires me to create and write about and I thank God for all of it...every day I try to do something creative, however little or big, and that gives me a feeling of happiness and fulfillment. I invite you to join me in my adventures...
