Eternal Perspective

Eternal perspective

We saw her at church

She was wheel-chair bound

The shock triggered empathy and tears

Wife reached out her hand to comfort

In some way – somehow

Prayer was next – giving the burden away

Back to the One who bore them on a tree

And now our puny helpless hands

go back to our sides

Because our minds cannot find

More for us to do

While hope feeds our faith

And faith our hope

Next we heard she had passed away

Passed away to where?

Into the Everlasting Arms for good

Where that perspective is given

That this was a light affliction but for a moment

 

II Corinthians 4/17
