|Seen at Brookside last week...|
A friend in Blogland (I declare! Sometimes I simply marvel that these are folk I've never actually met in person!) posted this amazing tribute to a friend recently gone to her heavenly home:
Today in my final goodbyes I grieved not for her, but for my loss of her: an earthly lamplight radiating with a steady luster of faithful kindness and availability. She lit my world with mercy that mirrored the Father's love, glowing from the depths of a spirited and compassionate heart.
I find myself rather melancholy and reflective in spirit these days while many around me are merry. I know it will pass. But these words of Beth in Blogland struck such a chord within me! How I long to be "an earthly lamplight". Mirrowing the Father's love. Glowing from the depths of a spirited and compassionate heart...
This is my Christmas wish.
