I am very glad to see everyone but its a question of juggling the time carefully without making people feel that they are being a nuisance!
Tomorrow I am burying the ashes of a much loved lady whose children are all teachers and thats why it had to be half term...One of them has sent me a prayer to say at the graveside, where her husband already rests..Its not one Ive ever seen before but it is lovely and if anyone knows who wrote it I should be glad to know.
God hath not promised skies ever blue
Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through.
God hath not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God hath promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labour, light for the way,
Grace for the trials, help from above,
Unfailing sympathy, undying love.
