God's Garden

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.

He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering,
He knew that you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.

He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb.
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered “Peace be thine.”

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you did not go alone…
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

I had the privilege to hire Andrew at Counter Connection. I was looking for a good man, but found a great man. He was what i called a gentle, quiet, and a wonderful example of what a man should be. He was a real gentleman, and a pleasure to work with. I will miss this young man, and my prayers go out too his family.
