This wonderful lady's poetry affects me the same way Janet and I compliment you for taking the time to express this from that heart of yours that is constantly overflowing with love and kindness...I find a very special quality in Elizabeth's poetry that I can't put into words...bit it's imbued with such deep warm humanity....from nostalgia to heart rending pain it comes across as a special treat to me.....and for that I thank her for sharing...I thank her so much ...my heart goes out to her through this difficult time....ethome

Love that quote of yours at the end...... VANtastic wisdom you possess....keep your pen moving toward the minds of friends....

My sweet sister...this is beautiful~

Elizabeth* Many prayers are winged your way
for peace and comfort to you and yours, may
you know that there are many here with arms
open wide when you need to be hugged or
someone just to listen.  Much love to you~


The best and most beautiful things
in the world cannot be seen or even touched
---- they must be felt with the heart~

Janet this is more than beautiful for a more than beautiful lady.
Liz, may the Holy Spirit wrap His arms around you and give you that peace that passes all understanding. I'm so sorry and praying for you and your family.
Love & hugs,

Being new, I don't know Liz and family, but I do know I can pray for them.  I love the way "Passions Family" comes together better than most real families!  Praying with y'all,   ME

Grace... the one word that describes Liz. This is a beautiful tribute to our friend. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Janet Marie,
Grace under pressure indeed, you have done her proud.

My contribution to her. Not to take away from what you've done for there is no comparison.

Elizabeth Santos - Love's Shadow

Soft and gently spoken
Disregarding self
Her heart is wide and open
Her humor as an elf
Her family,… her lifeline
Connects her to the pen
When ever there is strife time
She offers hope again

Her beloved Tony
Is now just moving on
Although her heart is lonely
She gifts us with her song
A song of life and learning
A song of grace and peace
A soaring song of yearning
And bittersweet release

As she's stood be others
May now all, stand by her
In this place, all are brothers
She taught us how to share
Shown us of God's portrait
And followed with His care
Her hand reveals a power so great
A spirit so aware

As her poetry calls me
By shadows tinged by loss
I sense implicit victory
Love's shadow shows the cross


Elizabeth my dearling
There's one thing I have learned
I am but a yearling
As far as you're concerned
You have taught me so much
I always learn from you
And your tender love's touch
Reveals a heart pure…true


Kethry

Good grief now how did I miss this one?  Two of my favorite people in one viewing!  I am sure that Liz would love a reminder of this beautiful poem and and am sending it onto her right now.  The response poems were glorious as well.  Cheers to you all on this one.

I had to address this one again, as I think of you both on a rainy Saturday night.  I wanted to send it to Lizzie, to refresh her memory, on how special she is.  You too JM
