Tender Moments Of The Heart

Tender Moments Of The Heart

The treasure of your memory
will be with us always;
We thank you for the love you shared
and all your thoughtful ways.

We miss you now and know
that somehow we will go on;
Reminded of the care you showed –
the family ties are still strong.

Things will be different now;
We no longer have your laughter, nor smile.
Instead we have reminders that
your love was so worthwhile.

We see your faded photographs –
now everything has changed.
In every card, in every teardrop,
love was so carefully arranged.

We are so saddened by the suddenness
with which you did depart,
But we can rejoice in your memories –
these tender moments of the heart.

Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
