REMEMBRANCE

Life falls one by one
like leaves in autumn
called to the ground
that they may return
in spring
eternal.

All Hallows’ Eve to all. 🙂

It is a special and holy weekend for us here as we celebrate All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day.  For us, it is a time for prayer for and remembrance of those who have gone ahead of us, a time to remember that there is life beyond death.

    • True. This Halloween custom is unknown to me while I was growing up. It is so glitzy and theatrical, it makes it easy to forget about the religious underpinnings of this celebration. 🙂

  1. A very meaningful post, thank you. Having lost my sister in law and now my father to cancer within the space of three weeks, two leaves have fallen and I would desperately like to see them again in Spring…..Thank you…..

    • I am so sorry for the loss of your loved ones. May they have eternal rest. My condolences to you and your family. I am thankful that somehow this little post brought cheer to you. 🙂
