Donít think of her as gone
PRAYER # 147
[or HIS JOURNEY]
Lord, make me an instrument of
Where there is hatred, let me
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I
may not so much seek
to be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is pardoning that we are pardoned
And it is in dying, that we are
born to eternal life.
PRAYER # 118
I am the resurrection and the Life,
Saith the Lord: He that believeth in
me, though he were dead, yet shall
he live: and whosoever liveth and
believeth in me, shall never die.
I know that my redeemer liveth, and
that he shall stand at the latter day
upon the earth: and though his body
be destroyed, yet shall I see GOD:
whom I shall see for myself, and
mine eyes shall behold, and not as
a stranger. We brought nothing into
this world, and it is certain we can
carry nothing out. The LORD gave,
and the LORD hath taken away;
blessed be the name of the LORD.
PRAYER # 149
When youíre alone with Jesus
And he sweetly smiles on thee,
Will you gently whisper to Him
A little prayer for me?
And when Iím alone with Jesus
And all else is hid from view,
Iíll gently drop into His Sacred Heart
A little prayer for you.
PRAYER # 150
God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be,
so he put his arms around you,
and whispered "Come to me".
With tearful eyes we watched you,
and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
PRAYER # 151
Time has taken me from you,
Although not very far.
Iíll be watching through the sunshine
And through the brightest star.
Iíll be watching all of you,
From the heavens up above.
So take good care of each other
And carry all my love.
If youíre ever wondering where I am,
hereís where you can start.
Take a look inside yourself
Deep within your heart.
PRAYER # 152
We little knew that morning that
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone;
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide;
and though we cannot see you,
you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same;
but as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
PRAYER # 153
A Bridge Called Love
It takes us back to brighter years
to happier sunlit days
and to precious moments
that will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to those
from whom we had to part.
There is a bridge of memories
from earth to Heaven above...
it keeps our dear ones near us.
It's the bridge that we call love.
PRAYER # 154
Weep not for me though I am gone
Into the gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight.
There is no need for tears.
I am at peace, my soul is at rest
There is no pain, I suffer not,
For with your love I was so blessed.
I am in a place of comfort
The fear now is gone.
Put those things in your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death
But celebrate my life.
PRAYER # 155
You can shed tears that she is gone or
you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray
that sheíll come back, or you can
open your eyes and see all sheís left.
Your heart can be empty because
you canít see her, or you can be full
of the love you shared. You can
turn your back on tomorrow and
live yesterday, or you can be happy
for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that
sheís gone, or you can cherish her
memory and let it live on. You can
cry and close your mind, be empty
and turn your back, or you can do
what sheíd want: smile, open your
eyes, love and go on.
PRAYER # 156
[She or He]
You never said "Iím leaving"
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why.
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried,
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In Life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still,
In my heart you hold a place
That no one could ever fill.
PRAYER # 157
Thereís a place Iíve never seen
beyond this world we know.
A place Iíve only heard of
But someday hope to go.
Itís not on any map;
there are no roads to take me there.
But itís a place of perfect peace
where hearts are free from care.
And though I understand some
may be saddened when I leave,
one day we will all meet again,
thatís what I believe.
When itís time to travel there
I think Iíll wear a smile.
Iíll say goodbye to those I love,
but only for a while.
Knowing there are others who
have traveled there alone,
who cannot wait to greet me and
to whisper "Welcome home".
PRAYER # 158
Perhaps they are not
stars in the sky,
but rather openings
where the love
of our lost ones
pours through and
shines down upon
us to let us know
they are happy.
PRAYER # 159
For every burden that we bear,
For every sorrow, every care,
There's a reason
For every grief that bows the head,
For every tear-drop that is shed,
There's a reason
For every lonely pain-racked night,
There's a reason
But if we trust God as we should,
All must work out for our good,
He knows the reason.
PRAYER # 160
Only A Mother Knows
How many cares
Does a motherís heart know Ė
How many joys
Does a mother bestow?
How many heartwarming
things has she said Ė
How many tears
has she secretly shed?
How many smiles
has she given away Ė
How many kindnesses
Day after day?
How many prayers
Has she prayed for another?
Nobody really knows Ė
Only a mother!
