The Spirit's Homecoming

I wrote this piece in 2002 when my Mother
was close to her "homecoming."
God gave her another year
and it was used in her funeral in January, 2004.
I share it today for a family very close to me.

The Spirit's Homecoming

Just as one’s sunset
is another’s sunrise,
And one’s dusk
is another’s dawn,
So is the body’s death
the soul’s awaking,
and the physical’s demise
is the spirit’s homecoming.

At that time
infirmities are healed
sorrows are comforted
and God is glorified.

Blessed be the Name of the Lord my God
Who heals our infirmities,
Soothes our sorrows,
And holds us in the Palm of His Hand.
