"Life is but a Stopping Place"

Read by cousin Cindy at Mom's Rosary

"Life is but a stopping place
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road
To sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys
Different paths along the way
We all were meant to learn some things
but never meant to stay.

Our destination is a place
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.

And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward
And find an everlasting Peace
Together with the Lord."
