Post subject:  Tony

We were putting out the trash this morning without coats in a cold cold breeze, Tony's widow of 27 days and I. We cried and shivvered and remembered the wonderful Christian man who loved the Lord with all his heart, but who died in an alcoholic coma. She seemed years younger, and had completely forgiven him, but missed him sorely. "He's been promoted" she quoted the minister at his funeral.

I had penciled these words earlier this morning and they seem to fit:
him and her and me!

Finished Yet Incomplete

He took my sins
But I still sin.
"Oh why, oh why?"
I sometimes cry!

Often I think I should die;
And wonder why
He took my sin,
Yet I'm a sinner still:
He took my sin,
But didn't take my will!

And for those sins
That still remain
My Jesus cannot die again;
No, dying to them is still my pain.
The cross He bare
Still mine to wear...
I can (with joy) for He
With me the load does share!

My rights I waive,
And will until
I see the grave.
All, then, against me He'll erase
When I see Him face to face,
And understand!
