~ A Life Well Lived ~

A life well lived is such a joy-
This day, on one we gaze,
As for our sister, mother, friend
We give to God our praise.

For, when she gave her life to God
His Spirit dwelt within,
And by that walk of faith each day
True love's been clearly seen.

~ ~ ~

Here now, or far, so many years
Depending on the Lord,
To share the Word of God to all
In answer to His call.

And all the while was motherhood,
The joys, adventure, grief,
All through each day, in love or pain
God's arms were underneath.

~ ~ ~

That mothering swung wide the door
To children far and wide,
That they might find the Father's love
And know Him as their Guide.

Her caring heart, her thoughts, her hands
Were never all her own,
But, held outstretched with open palms
To all who sought a home.

~ ~ ~

With prayerful spirit, faith and love
Foundational in might,
That younger lives may rise to grow
Where all is good and right.

We thank our God you gave your life
To live it for the Lord,
For by that glory, love flowed through
To bless us, one and all.

~ ~ ~

For a life well lived is such a joy-
This day, on yours we gaze,
As for our sister, mother, friend
We give to God our praise.

And now, dear one, we love,
We all would like to say,
That you deserve to hold this day
The worlds most beautiful bouquet.

Each day of our lives
we make deposits
in the memory banks of all those that we love.
