The Pebble a Remembrance

Like pebbles left on a headstone
Where I’ve visited a beloved friend,
Souls set free, to sites unknown, in the presence of
Pure love, God’s Promised Land…
Knowing they existed, but I can no longer hold their hand
Or see their eyes searching mine…
I lay upon the dirt, and I cry….
Time is not relevant in the city where they abide…
So I will not cower in the night, nor seek a place to hide…
For when I leave this body of clay…my spirit will soar high…
A pebble’s such a little thing…but a remembrance for all passersby…
When they see the tiny rock on my headstone…
They will all know why
And they will lie upon the dirt, and there they will cry!
Missing the essence of me…
But do not weep for me, but let Joy be your strength;
To give and love and live your life, like pebbles skipping over a lake…
Ripples in a circle, each one touching the other, like a tsunami flowing into the world, a path we all must take…
You see…
Life passes quickly here, gone in the blink of an eye…
Transformed then transported…We must…
Take hold of the Angel’s hand, and soar side by side…
Life doesn’t end with a headstone…
With pebbles left behind…
There’s no good-bye’s and no one dies…when you’ve accepted Him
Now, when you leave that pebble on a headstone for someone
You’ll know that for a child of God, their journey’s just begun
The battle is finished, and with Jesus, we won!!

The Soul Takes Flight Poetry by: MS O’Neill
Philippians 1:3 King James Version (KJV) I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
1 Corinthians 2:9 New King James Version (NKJV) But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
