A Song for Sunday . . .







JOURNEY OF THE ANGELS 

                                 

Somewhere * in a winter night * the angels * begin their flight; 
Dark skies with miles to go, * no footsteps * to be lost in snow.



They fly to you * Oh, new-born king * they fly to you  
Oh, angels sing.



One is sorrow * one is peace, * one will come * to give you sleep.

One is comfort, * one is grief, * one will take * the tears you weep.



New star * in the midnight sky, * in heaven * all the angels fly.  Soft wings so true, * and all things they will give to you.  Somewhere * in a winter night * the angels * begin their flight.



Tonight, * all sing. * Oh, angels, * a new-born king. 
Tonight, * all sing. * Oh, angels, * a new-born king.

Dear Friends,
In deference for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School I will not be posting or visiting any blogs for several days. The cloud of sadness still hangs over so many and I simply have no more words to say at this time. 
Thank you for your visit and friendship,
Diane

  7. I just heard on the news this morning that one of the victims, Charlotte Bacon, has Grandparents and other relatives here in Minnesota. They are traveling to Connecticut for her funeral on Wednesday. She was the little girl who begged her Mom to let her wear her new pink dress last Friday. Her grandmother said her daughter told her that she would always remember Charlotte, so happy and beautiful, in her new pink dress on that last day.
