Happy Birthday Mum - RIP

Dear Friends
Today is the day my mum would have turned 57. I am extending the invitation to join me in lighting a candle to celebrate her birthday. For those that joined us after the fact, my mum passed away earlier in May this year. I would like to commemorate her birthday by lighting candles. I miss her dearly and today is hard for me as even though we never saw her on her birthday there was always that phone call to wish her and to just chat about her day.

There Are No Words
There are no words ...what can I say? At last her sweet soul winged its way To peace and freedom in the sky Where never again will she suffer or cry.
It's all part of God's great plan ... Which remains a mystery to man. We cannot understand His ways Nor can we count our earthly days.
But who are we to question and doubt? God knoweth well what He's about; He knew she longed to "go to sleep" Where only angels, a vigil keep.
The pain of living grew too great No longer could she stay and wait; She did not want to leave you, dear, But she had finished her work down here.
So she closed her eyes and when she awoke, These are the words the Master spoke ... "Welcome, dear child, you are Home at last, And now the burden of living is past."
"There's work for you in My Kingdom, dear And you are needed and wanted here." So weep not, she has just gone on ahead, Don't think of her as being dead.
She's out of sight for a little while, And you'll miss her touch and her little smile, But you know she is safe in the home above Where there is nothing but Peace and Love.
And, surely, you would not deny her peace ... And you're glad that she has found release. Think of her there as a soul that is free, And Home at last, where she wanted to be.

RIP Mum - I love you and always will
