Old Dog

Old Dog

From days of spring, to the wintery cold,
Beating faint, a heart of purest gold.
Eyes old, dimming, just one desire warming,
To lay by his master, watch the sun slowly sleeping.
~ D.F.

The Visitation


Slow may be His writing,
But its meaning is clear,
Your visitation draws near.


Regarding Belshazzar, the Chaldean king:

“MENE, God has numbered your kingdom and put an end to it;
TEKEL, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting;
PERES, your kingdom has been divided and given to the Medes and Persians.”

~ Daniel 5:25-28


Heaven and the Bee

Perhaps this little bee can give us a glimpse of heaven?


Bursting with life,
not barely,

Ever so busy,
yet not fretting,

One at home,
Hearts resting.

“You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.”

~ St Augustine of Hippo
(13 Nov 354 – 20 Aug 430)

+ May the souls of our dearly departed find eternal rest. Amen. +

Mel (1997-2012)

One year on since Our Lord desired you by His side.

In Heaven now and yet with us, in ashes and spirit.

Our guardian angel and first child, how can there ever be another.

Stay with us still, this is your home.

Come, son, it’s time for another walk together.
