My dear Ken this is deep. We often take life and everything for granted and nothing is guaranteed. When I was still in Germany (My home) I would go to the cemetery and just sit there and enjoy the peace. It was breathtaking to me at least . OMG thank you for sharing and add to my favorite. Hugs to you
Thanks Dag, as written; "Deep calls to Deep", and, the soul never sleeps, only the body sleeps (Death).
My beloved younger brother died in 2006, the following was written on the Funeral card; Do not stand by my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die. I did cry, a lot, but I was comforted with the sure hope of seeing him again.
A great piece Ken. There is something about cemeteries that whilst peaceful remind us that life is short and we need to make the most of it. Would have nominated this myself but Dagmar beat me to it.. Hugs Milly x
Thanks Meena, Jesus once asked this question; Is not the "Life" better than the food? When you understand that he is talking about the soul living forever with God, then it makes sense. Material food sustains our corruptible bodies for a season, but that born of the Spirit never dies!
