Another day when I don’t have the words to express deep sadness in our beautiful world.
House work is a good place to use my emotional energy. Plan was to remove all the books from the book case; dust the books, clean the shelves, refill the bookcase.
The first shelf uncovered a little black book that had fallen through the bookcase. Reaching in between the shelves I found a beautiful old bible.
It was totally unfamiliar to me, opening the inside cover I read the soldiers prayer printed on the inside front cover.
The mystery of its owner was soon solved, written in the back cover in the owners hand the date 1919 and the name of my husbands Grandfather.
World war one soldier that fought in the war to end all wars.
Reading the soldiers prayer again it gave me some of the words I could not find “think wisely, speak rightly, resolve bravely, act kindly, live purely, support us in life and comfort us in death.
My prayers tonight are for Manchester
