Written by S.C. Mitchell
November 2017 


Are the shadows growing longer- like the 
Closing of the day ? - are the dappled leaves 
Of Autumn - clinging on - despite the grey ? - Is 
There still a childlike yearning - deep within the 
Aging soul - to return to summer evenings -
Where life held - a strange - 
Un-worldly glow ?

Oh the longings of a past - now distant - 
Where the memories could stray - through
Imagination's musings - to a time when all seemed
Play - but my friend - it's time to leave - and 
Close the the page of yester-year -  and 
Place a ribbon of thanksgiving - sealed
With love - and no shed tear .

Time is ever moving forward - with its 
Progress - on it goes - chills of Winter are 
Descending - cooling hands - and nipping toes -
But -  hidden in its frozen beauty - lie the seeds of
Hope to come - and - in the shadowlands and
Valleys - the Good Shepherd -  calls His
Loved ones home .

So -  my dear friends - do not murmer - 
Though the skies have turned to grey - faith
Must rise above the storm clouds - where the sun
Still casts a ray - giving light - to lead us onward - to
The realms of Heaven above - step by step -
Keep moving forward - to the Father's
Heart of love . 

Love - that says - the journey's over - 
Love that welcomes us within - those wondrous 
Gates - and Peace forever - far from  Earth's debilitating
Sin - Oh such mercy - grace  and wonder - will feast our eyes
On that great shore - when we leave these mortal 
Shrouds of sorrow - and enter Heaven's
Open Door . 


Thank You Jesus  for making the Way back to the Father 
through the Door of Forgiveness , Grace , Love and 
Mercy . 

From my heart , I say again ' THANK YOU ' 

Many Blessings to all who read these words . 

With love from Stella x
