Life's a Journey

Last night I was trying to find some good verses for grandma's memorial service. I was searching through a few of my bibles (student bible, The Message, NJV) and on the Internet. I felt like I was back in college studying for a test in the Union!
I realized it's much harder to find the perfect scripture than I originally thought.

Anyways, I came across this poem and really loved it! Enjoy :)

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord

I'm here for ya Bec :) The joke of it is that I thought we were just a few days into week 6 and really Terry informed me that tomorrow is week 7. Hopefully this babe gets its daddy's math skills!
