For Crown Of Beauty
thursday was crown of beauty's 32nd wedding anniversary, another anniversary spent without her beloved husband ernie who's name means "battle to the death".
this is a poem which you can find on crown of beauty's side bar;
When engulfed by the terror
of the tempestuous sea,
Unknown waves before you roll;
At the end of doubt and peril
Though fear and conflict
seize your soul:
When surrounded by the blackness
of the darkest night
O how lonely death can be;
At the end of this long tunnel
is a shining light,
For death is swallowed up in victory!
But just think of stepping on shore
-and finding it Heaven!
Of touching a hand
-and finding it God's!
Of breathing new air
and finding it celestial!
Of waking up in glory
-and finding it home!
(Words by L.E. Singer)
i also saw this on crown of beauty's blog http://mla-crownofglory.blogspot.com/ and thought i would copy it here.
crown of beauty says;
"Today I celebrate my 32nd wedding anniversary.
Because Ernie is no longer here on earth, there is no celebrating in the real sense of the word...nevertheless it is still a special day to remember.
Today I thank God for the thirty years of our lives that my husband and I spent together.
And I thank Him for these past sixteen months of my life without Ernie. During these months, I feel like I have grown so much...learned so much...realized so much!"
and here i am putting in this song for her and praying that the lord will be her continuing comfort until that day that she will finally see her precious ernie.
my prayers are with you dear friend....love terry
