Evening Prayer – 22 November 2020

November 23, 2020
Mom holding Meridee and Gary Ofstedahl’s cat George just before Christmas in 2016.

The sun has set and the Vesper Lights flicker and glow

As I reflect on this anniversary

Mom waited until I returned from Colorado

I told her I loved her just after midnight on the 22nd

Then the call came from Denise to come to Mom’s bedside

By the time I got there, her last breath had been taken

Three years later and we still mourn

Yet we are also thankful for the gift of her life

We love you, Mom

Now as my eyelids grow heavy

I lift this humble prayer to you

Dona Nobis Pacem

Grant Us Peace

A wee prayer from the heart of your Padre…
