More from my walk…

in the cemetery a couple of weeks ago.

010

I love this verse.

005

Very interesting sentiment here.

015

And this, the simplest verse of all, is my favorite.

*****

I am stuck in the house today as I am waiting for a package to be delivered by FedEx.  I have no idea what time they deliver here.  So I am in the waiting mode.

Stay safe and be happy!!

  2. We once had to sign when UPS or FedEx delivered a package, but no more. They will just leave the package at the door, sometimes not even ringing the doorbell.

    Have a wonderful Wednesday, Beth!

  4. Oh how I love that first one. Just perfect.

    They show up around here about 2. Fairly predictable. Hope yours shows up much sooner and that you are set free for the rest of the day.

    Thank you so much for the birthday wishes for Neil. Wasn't he an adorable bundle? His girlfriend probably thinks he still is. :-)

  16. Interesting thoughts. We used to walk through cemetaries in the small towns when Jim was pastor in Iowa. There was so much history.

  17. MY goodness I can't ever remember seeing a stone with so much writing engraved on it. They charge so much for that now days I think it is very rare. Hope your package got there okay and you didnt have to wait all day long. Stay cool..I know it will be heating up soon. :o)

  22. Very interesting head stones! I find cemetaries interesting...not creepy or scary...just interesting and melencholoy. Hope your package arrived safely.

  23. We visit a tombstone, decorate it with flowers, and read in a sentence who this person was. I read the headstones and think of what the life of that person was like. Sometimes I think of them as a movie. I play them out in my head they way I imagine they would be like. Who knows... maybe one of their lives were the basis for Romeo and Juliet. As unrealistic as that seems, they could have lived an untold love story. They could have saved someones life. They could have changed the world, and nobody would know.

  24. I like the last quote and the others are interesting. But the word, "doth" was exciting. I don't know the last time I heardth that word:) I need to go to more cemetaries....but I'm not sure why I haven't.

  26. I wish I could walk there with you! What very interesting epitaphs. I have written some poetry based on some graves I have seen and stones I read. It makes you realize they were real people. Thanks for sharing!

  27. Beautiful tombstones. Having opted for a natural burial, I'm afraid I'll have to do wit a simple wooden marker:-(
