The Best

My husband and I really like to go ‘antiquing.’ We like to shop for old things that are unique, and sometimes we are able to find some very interesting things.

Often times we see things people have made in the way of cross-stitching or some other needle project. The words below are from one I saw a few days ago in a shop. I had never seen it before, and it touched me, so I thought I’d share it with you.

It reminded me of my Daddy and made me smile. I hope you smile too, as you remember a loved one who has gone from this earth.

He Only Takes the Best

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around you and whispered, “Come with Me.”
With tear-filled eyes we watched as you suffered and faded away,
although we loved you deeply, we could not will you to stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to show us, He only takes the best.
