For Alden and Gertrude on Memorial Day weekend 2018
Living in the “NOWS” was the only way they knew how:
with gardens, chocolate chip cookies, flowers, baseball, dancing and accompanying dogs.
Holding hands, encouraging hearts, living in the “NOWS” even when bending a brow.
In sorrow, in joy, living “do not worry” was the tempo to each step,
and carries them to the dance we can’t see yet.
Living the “NOWS” is the legacy they leave, beckoning us with sunshine, flying birds and warm breeze.
Calling us to live our “NOWS” bound in the promise of God’s love - Now is our dance of love to lead.
