Pastor’s Pondering – August 8, 2018

Waiting in the hospital lobby,

I saw two families leave

With their brand-new babies,

And I saw one family gather,

Tears flowing,

Prayers rising,

Mourning a loved one’s death.

We come into this world

And then we leave.


In between we rise,

We fall,

We struggle,

We persevere,

We pray.

We laugh,

We cry.


If we are loved,

It will be well.

If not,

May God have mercy on us all.
