Moment of Zen: At Peace


In last week's Moment of Zen, I mentioned that my grandfather was gravely ill.  He passed away this last week, and he was laid to rest yesterday in a beautiful and very moving ceremony.  He is now at peace and is no longer suffering.  So my moment of Zen this week is for him, and I know that he is in a better place.

Joe...We share your grief in the pasing of your father this week. The photograph you have selected for this posting is most appropriate. The angel in the field, gathering the wheat is filled with such christian symbols. And, lke that angel, you remain in the field, laboring, and spreading the love which your grandfather inspired in you.

Thanks!

I'm so sorry, but I am also glad that he is now in a peaceful, pain-free place. I pray that God will comfort you and your family as you grieve the loss of your grandfather.
Peace <3

My sincere sympathy Joe.

Run through your memories of him often in your mind. Smile and even laugh when you think of him and the joys he gave to you throughout your life with him.
