Tuesday's Trust - The Birthday Party Now

Tuesday's Trust

The Birthday Party Now

With Merry Katherine's birthday coming up in 2 1/2 weeks, her birthday is on my mind... So last night I had a wonderful dream that ended in a nightmare. And yet, her happiness was replete, unencumbered by the complications occurring around me...

I dreamed of your birthday party last night;
Happy, you were, surrounded by your friends ~
Oh, for me, it was a joyous sight,
Like a glimpse at a happiness that never ends…

My family soon came to join the party,
A festive reunion was felt in the air.
The joy was great, the laughter hardy;
Then entered a tiny glimpse at despair…

When a grumpy soul issued a complaint,
Communicating I was doing it all wrong,
The festive air attempting to taint,
But I knew the happiness coming of your birthday song…
and knew you were above the fray of the fretting doubts of the petulant throng.

Is that how it is today:
Your happiness is complete;
The tragic air that surrounds me,
With your joy, simply cannot compete?

The taunts that come do not touch you
For you're surrounded with your Heavenly view.

And I? I must simply keep my eyes Above,
Seeing, you truly are ever surrounded with love.
The torments here may come and go
But I know they'll never impair your Heavenly glow!

Rest easy now my child in all your joy;
Your family of love will soon come to enjoy
Our Heavenly Father's never-ending love
As we join the ranks in your party Above.

Until then, please know, our hearts are ever with you;
Though steeped in sadness, we're ever refreshed by God's Heavenly Dew
That keeps reminding us of the Joy that lies ahead when together we'll sing,

"Happy Birthday to you!"
