November

 

A Time for Remembering loved ones gone

Not forgotten, carved into our lives forever

Fathers, Mothers, Friends.

Who shared our lives, Touched us

And left us to be with you Lord.

 

A Time for Rejoicing

For giving Thanks

For Saints who have shared our Lives

Who brought Light to our Darkness

Helping us to know and Understand you Lord.

 

A Time for looking Forward

To when we Meet again

The Ordinary and the Special

United in Love

A Communion of Saints

In the Presence of you Lord.

Our Merciful Father.
