We have also been allowed to share a poem written by member Violet Lochore, who gave each of the lily members one at their Christmas potluck held earlier in the month.
Watching the strength of a candle
This induces inner peace, one can handle.
Most of our worries begin to ease,
Oh, treasure and enjoy that peace.
How amazing is a baby's power,
Who will insist to use it at any hour.
Observing the flame, it wavers a bit,
As the baby grows to be a "kid".
Miracles of God keeps life versatile,
Children know what to do. Smile.
The candle keeps burning steady and bright,
Producing the everlasting light.
Watching our family growing up,
Bringing their children to see mom and pop.
The candle's flame is still burning strong,
Trying to build a brotherly bond.
Moving more slower as time goes by,
Old age, what about the twinkle in the eye?
The candle's flame never quavered,
It is like God's love, it never wavers.
