Centennial Poetry

Author: Brad  |  Category: Faith, Family

For those who may have read Amazing Grace, you may find the following delightful also.

Grace has been known to wax poetic now and again.

This is a poem she dictated to my Dad over the phone (she doesn’t see to write for herself anymore) on April 29, 2010, several months after her 100th birthday.

A hundred years are finished.
A century has gone.
And now a second season
Of learning has begun.

I’ll try to keep me ready
For what the future brings,
Til with the Holy Spirit
My spirit, answering, sings.

I thought this was pretty wonderful coming from my favorite centenarian.

You’re in Boardman Country!

Make yourself at home,
