Saturday's Sayings - Love is Eternal

Saturday's Sayings

Love is Eternal


The Rose Beyond the Wall

A rose once grew
where all could see,
sheltered beside
a garden wall,
And as the days passed
swiftly by,
it spread its branches, straight and tall....

One day, a beam of light
shone through
a crevice that had
opened wide ~
The rose bent gently
toward its warmth
then passed beyond
to the other side

Now, you who deeply
feel its loss,
be comforted ~ the rose blooms there ~
Its beauty even greater now,
nurtured by
God's own loving care.

No Fear in Heaven
© 2009, Ferna Lary Mills

There are so many things in life that we can't understand,
like why a tragedy like this can happen in this land.
One moment life is perfect and the next it falls apart,
leaving us with nothing but an eternally aching heart.

Our souls cry out in agony amidst the suffering and despair.
We feel the pain and tear our clothes and scream "It isn't fair!".
Spirits are now shattered. Hearts will never be the same.
We grasp at straws and seek to find the one who is to blame.

Horrific as our life now seems, one thing remains quite true.
Our little ones have now been freed to do things angels do.
They can't recall the horrors of those last days they were here.
They remember not the terror, the hurt, nor the fear.

There is no fear in Heaven. No more sorrow. Only Joy.
It's filled with joyous laughter from each little girl and boy.
We can only try to imagine, in spite of all earthly wrongs,
our little angels are learning the words to the Angel's songs.

Amidst the children's laughter and their Heavenly play,
there's also more important work going on there today.
Jesus is building mansions, never taking time to sleep,
for Reunions are being planned, yes, even as we weep.

The children gather around Him and listen to Him speak,
for He has all the answers that they curiously seek.
He tells them for a time, in Heaven, they must wait,
and then they can meet us at Heaven's pearly gate.

‎"Be thankful for your trials. If you're being tested, you're being perfected. Which means you have a divine purpose & reason to rejoice!"


shared by grieving mother, D. M.


I said a prayer for you today
That God would take your fear away,
And that you would no longer dread
When lights are out and you're in bed.
I prayed God's light to shine right there
To soothe your soul with loving care,
And take away the painful part
Of memories from that little girl
Who was harmed by the evil in this world.
For sister-love is very strong,
And fights real hard to right a wrong.
God's our Father now, you know,
And to His arms we all may go.
He'll take the hurt and ease the pain
So you can live your life again.
You wonder how I know it's true?
Because I lived that life with you.
And nightly angels came to stay
To watch and take my fear away.
God made us sisters for a reason,
And we have weathered many seasons.
Through many more I'll walk with you.

I'll listen and will talk with you.
And if you need me, I'll be there,
And rest assured I'll always care
About your future, present, and past
For our sister-love was meant to last.
I said a prayer for you today,
And God will take your fear away.
And you'll no longer have to dread,
Because Light shines eternal around your bed.

‎"To the people who love you, you are Beautiful already.

This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings;

But because they so clearly see your soul.

Your shortcomings then dim by comparison.

The people who care about you are willing to let you be imperfect and beautiful!"
