How to Remember?

How to remember?

A question that weighs me down,

For time is my enemy and my friend.

Schedules press and push.

.

Pictures and words grow fuzzy, unclear,

Dates and specifics will fade,

Like water held in the hand.

.

But focused attention will help to recall,

the warmth of those days years ago.

The sound of a laugh,

The gleam in an eye,

The joy of the Lord in her soul.

.

The birth of her sons, which she held in her arms

for mere months before God took her home –

Home to her true Husband.

Home to her true family.

Home to her true home on high.

.

Who can know the ways of the Lord?

Who has given Him counsel?

Looking back on the moving of His ways,

I can only, ever bow my heart in praise.

And learn to count my moments and my days.
