Heavenly Foray

Radiant, ablaze be the heavenly foray
Spectrum of stars in luminous array
A palette of color, the Creator's Art
From which beauty and grace have their start
Constant and changing be each fervent star
The Presence of Creation known from afar.

  1. Hi Rosemarie - and so this is the place, that my Mom believes in - I must believe too that she is there, 'home' in the love and beauty of eternity with our creator and Lord
    Love to you

  2. Dearest Gail,

    The splendor of vistas far are ever a comfort to me. I too, hold to the spirit of those loved ones who have passed on to the "heavenly foray." You have made your Mom known to me and so my life has been blessed with love shared.

    Blessings and Peace

    Rose Marie
