The Shadows of Those Who Have Gone Away

 

As the morning sun arises,
Take a moment to pray.
Thank God for all your blessings,
And for those who have gone away.

Remembering their faces,
And footprints they have left.
Tuck the memories in your heart,
For by them, you are blessed.

As the evening moon arises,
Take a moment to pray.
See the shadows ‘neath the moonlight,
Of those who have gone away.

Yesterdays Footprints

 

The sidewalks of your hometown bear the footprints of those who have gone before. If they could talk, their stories would fill volumes and their wisdom would be priceless.

The younger you are the less this may mean to you now, but someday those memories of days and years gone by will be part of your thoughts.

You will rediscover the footprints of those who walked where you walked growing up. With a tear in your eye, you will smile and remember family and friends from days past, those days you thought would never end.

Appreciate this day. Look around you and see the people and places that are in your life. Savor everything and everyone that you see. Take it all in, for sooner than you realize, your today will be yesterday’s footprints.

The Silent Visitors

In the shadows of a dimly lit church,
Near the back in a pew alone,
As quiet as sunlight’s rays,
The silent visitors sit.

Unnoticed, they listen, they read, they think,
Then they quietly slip out a side door.
No one sees them leave,
No one noticed them there to begin with.

The silent visitors return to their daily life,
Smiling, as they remember,
What they heard, what they read,
Taking thoughts with them through the day.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. (Phil 4:8)
