Long-Suffering Rewarded

Father, bless those who have suffered so,
Those who have fought the good fight,
Those who have done everything possible
To get well, but disease took all strength.
When letting go completely in YOU,
YOU gave them their reward.
So, in sadness, we let go and give them back to YOU,
Where they can rejoice with YOU forever.

We celebrate their love and life,
As we remember the joy and care,
Their outstretched, open hands in sharing,
Their faithfulness, their willingness in using the gifts and
Talent graciously given them,
To lighten the hearts of so many
To appreciate God’s beauty everywhere.
Thank YOU Lord for gifting our lives with them.
