The Wonder of It All*

Terminal, she approached
death with the resolve to

live in the Wonder of Love
now and not seek the silly

notion of a safety net for
beyond the grave. She and

her husband held hands as
they yielded patiently, in

holy suffering, to the loving
arms of the Eternal Beloved.

An aura of peace enveloped
them as they beheld —

the hospitable wonder of it all.
