This was the lovely sign that greeted me
when I came Sunday night
to my dear friend's home.
I had a very good visit in Ottawa.
It is now Tuesday morning,
I saw Mr. Husband off to work,
Cleo the Cat is sharing my chair and purring
and laundry is going and
I am slowly putting things away.
Groceries are going to need to be ordered,
clothes hung to dry,
all the wonderfulness of coming back home.
Late Sunday night after I got back from my friend's,
dear friends from BC told me of Fr. Matthew's sudden tragic passing;
he was a dear friend to many people
and I like many have been thinking and praying
for him and for his family.
I am so thankful for my life with Mr. Husband,
for my home and family; for my church family
that spans two countries and many churches;
for the time I had in Ottawa.
We must be grateful for each day as God is
the one who holds our future
and in Him we continue to trust....
