            A poem close to Wanda’s heart:

By the Grace of God

by James J. Metcalfe

 

All things are by the grace

of God … Including Life

and Death…Maturity and

Widsom…A newborn baby’s

Breath…The Sun and

Moon…The Mountain

peaks…The Weather and

Sea…And Everything upon

this Earth…Of time and

memory…Yet, some forget

this vital fact…While in their

selfish way…They try to take

the credit for…The Glory of

the Day…What they do…

And hold themselves

apart…As being so much

better than…The Ones of

Humble Heart…But They

must know they Cannot

live…Forever on this

sod…And therefore even

they Themselves…Are by the

Grace of God.
