A Poem August 20, 2005 11:14 AM

"Blessings in Life and Death", by Martha Duke Manley.

From the dawning of new life

To the fullness of our years,

Our lives are filled with many

Wonderful blessings.

From the earliest remembrance of our childhood

To the faintest memory of the aged,

Our minds are filled with many

Wonderful blessings.

From the light of a beautiful sunrise

To the star studded night,

Our days are filled with many

Wonderful blessings.

From the works of our labor

To the much needed rest,

Our bodies are filled with many

Wonderful blessings.

From all of these, we can see how

God's blessings work in you and me.

But better still, is that one thing

Of which the angels all do sing.

A soul passing from life unto death,

A soul leaving this world for eternal rest,

A soul reunited with the Father...  Yes,

This is the greatest of all our many blessings.
