 Arched Across The Sky

Rainbows created my imagination

As it arched across the sky

On one end there sat you

At the other end, there sat I

 

Imagining I could slide across

Over the rainbow to the end

There would be my pot of gold

The sweet love of my dear friend

 

The rainbow is a connection

Like a bridge from me to you

It appears joined by sunlight

Then the gray skies turn to blue

 

Arriving after the rainstorms

It became so evident to me

Thoughts of love follow rainbows

They arched right across the sea

 

A colorful arching rainbow

It has no gate, it has no door

It reaches from friend to friend

It arches from shore to shore

 

I smiled up today at the sky

How far would my loving smile go?

It slid right over to the other side

The other end of the colored rainbow

The Gift Of Friends
by Karin Schaefer

 

There are days when
bubbling from us comes
the innocent child within,
who giggles at the little things
and wears a silly grin.

There are days when
melancholy comes to
visit for a while;
the mind feels tired, the body weak;
we have no strength to smile.

There are days when
joy abundant
grabs a hold of you and me;
wraps us up in all it's splendor,
lifts us up and sets us free.

There are days when
sorrow wraps us
in its cloak of grief and fear,
'till our hearts ache to the breaking,
'till our eyes can't shed a tear.

There are days when
love bestows us
with its wonderment and light;
with its beauty and its mystery,
its power and its might.

And there are days when
life rewards us
and seems to make amends
by granting us a marvelous gift,
the precious gift of Friends.

Friends
by Katy

 

Friend: that one special person
who makes life a bit
easier by just being
there and listening to your
problems and difficulties.

Friendship: a special bond
between two people.
A bond that time
cannot break. It is strong
like a chain, with linking
hearts.

Memorial Letters

Their are a million words that could only scratch the surface of Randi Peck's character...loyal, compassionate, disciplined, loving, selfless, hard-working...but the words are so shallow on paper and her character was so rich. 

 

Her sincerity in ALL interactions was so real and this is what made her the kindest of friends.  I remember our grad school days and the way she worked so hard and studied so intensely, so I think one of my favorite memories is the night of her bachelorette party.  It's my favorite memory because I saw pure joy on Randi's face.  I don't remember the name of the place we went to, but I know that they played lots of oldies.  We got Randi on the dance floor and danced the night away.  We laughed and laughed the way girls do when they are together just loving life.  I also remember the joy it brought Nancy to see Randi having such fun.  So I cherish the fun times because I can still see her radiant smile and hear her laughter. 

 

As the months go by, I like to think about the new freedom and joy Randi is experiencing with our heavenly Father.  Free of the burdens of this world, I know she is dancing again with the lightest of feet and that same radiant smile...only more radiant now because she has seen and experienced the holiness of our living Father in Heaven.  So although the missing is painful, the thought of her new freedom brings me great joy because this is what she was born to experience.  Praise God for the life that He gives through His Son, Jesus Christ!

 

Sincerely,

Kara Lapp (college friend and fellow SLP)
