Time passes quickly

Hope, O my soul, hope. You know neither the day nor the hour. Watch carefully, for everything passes quickly, even though your impatience makes doubtful what is certain, and turns a very short time into a long one. – Saint Teresa of Avila

A saying we are familiar with

Time and tide wait for no man

And that is so true

The months have gone by

Now it is November

The month for the souls of the faithful departed

Reminding each of us of our days on earth

Numbered for each one

A subject close to my heart

And rightly so

For when a Christian dies

There can only be hope

Hope in the eternal reward

Hope in life everlasting

Hope in meeting God face to face

Hope in spending eternity with Him

The One who came to save us

Even while we were sinners

Even when we do not love Him or others

As commanded, and as requited

For He is love

And He knows only how to

Love us in ways beyond comprehension

Open His Heart to embrace us

Victorious God, merciful Saviour

Eternally grateful must we be!
