Chef Art's Tribute
I just had to design a memorial for those Americans who lost their lives on Tuesday. Verse 2 is my favorite.
They are such comforting words during an horrendous time in American history.
I never thought that I would be affected by this event but when the television programs started to show the faces of those potentially lost souls, I succumbed to grief. I'm actually happy that the media put names and faces to the victims.
For All The Saints (2 verses)
For all the saints, who from their labors rest, who thee by faith before the world confessed, thy Name, Heavenly Father, be forever blessed.
But lo! there breaks a yet more glorious day; the saints triumphant rise in bright array; the King of glory passes on his way.
Words: William Walsham How, 1864
Music: Sine nomine, Pro omnibus Sanctis, Luccombe, Sarum, Engelberg, For All The Saints
Bless the souls of the innocent who have died. Give strength to those who have survived and now face recuperative time in order to get their lives back.
Watch over our beloved land and keep her shores safe morning, noon and night.
Soothe the spirits of those who although not directly involved but involved as Americans are now hurting deeply.
I have received words of comfort from cyber pals in the USA, The Netherlands, Australia & Great Britain, who spoke eloquently about the United States and what we as a nation are facing.
They just wanted me to know that they care. I thought it a most loving gesture.
