Seasons of Gold

Post by Travis » Fri Feb 10, 2012 7:52 pm

(In Loving Memory of Grandma Neu)

In the cool calm breeze
I see trees of gold
Pondering all the beauty
God's awesome creation can hold

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world...

And like a golden leaf
One's life flutters
Fading fast-
In only a brief moment
Seasons of gold
And all their worth
On God's green earth
Are never meant to last

I've seen a life
Surrounded by children
And grandchildren
A circle of love
That knows no end

I've seen arms of love
Reach out and hug
And tug at heartstrings
Unselfishly putting others first
In all things

I've seen a strong faith in God
One based on trust and prayer
Never doubting in hard times
Knowing He would provide
And always be there

And I think to myself, what a wonderful life...

I've seen much suffering and pain
Wondering if and when
She would ever come around again

I've seen darkness that death can bring
But I believe there is victory in Jesus!
O' death where is thy sting?

In my minds eye I see a city
With streets of gold
Where golden streams of life unfold
I see loving arms stretching wide
Jesus, now embracing grandma close to His side...

And I think to myself, what a Mighty God we serve!!
