And Peace At the Last – Early Thursday Morning


from jessescrossroadscafe:

May the Lord support us all the day long,
until the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over,
and our work is done.

Then in your mercy,
grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest,
and peace at the last.

John Henry Newman

Out of the images and the shadows into the light.

The queen is in her last hours now. The night was difficult, but she is settling in and growing more quiet and peaceful.  She is a fighter to the end, surprising the nurses.  Her family and friends have gathered.

I will not be updating or answering emails for a little while.   Thank you for your kind wishes and your understanding.

P.S.  The queen has passed away peacefully in her sleep.

Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.
