poem of life~

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord 
I'm missing some people who have meant so much to me ... and just wanted to share a poem.  Also, I wanted to send out a {{BIG HUG}} to some dear friends who are dealing with a loss and some unexpected events of their own.  I'm thinking of you too.

Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
