On a long ago Easter, I wrote a poem when I was working through my grief about my daughter's life and death. Times of significance like Easter and Christmas were intense times of searching for meaning for me as a bereaved parent. I asked a good deal of  questions of God about Truth, peace, forgiveness and where my faith would take me.

 It was a journey that would lead me to a life long fascination with learning about spiritiuality and the things of wonder and awe so beyond our physical human experience. 

Easter is about rebirth on so many levels for me all these years later. My faith in God and His profound Love continues to grow, and not always in directions that I expect! Intrigued, and as long as the blessings continue to bring peace and forgiveness, I'll keep healing through my writing, and hopefully give others permission and encouragement to do the same.

This poem is included in my book, By Grace of Mourning, as part of my writing when narrative and prose wasn't working for me. May it bring you comfort as it did me in writing it that Easter so long ago now...
