Six Sentence Stories

Circumstance brought danger and tragedy.
You gave peace to my unsettled heart.
As a steadfast prayer wheel spinning in an ungodly world, with rapt cadence you followed the rhythms of the planet.
A trusting disciple, your spirit forever drawn to a place where an authentic life-your life-could exist.
Taking me with you, I will never regret following you there.
Sorrowful, I stand here alone knowing it was an amazing journey.
