Variations on a Theme: Death VI / or / Beginnings, Glory


In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
(John 1:4-5 ESV)


We are sorrowful, yet rejoicing for Grandpa Tom Clawson, an honorable man. 
The door on which he knocked his whole life opened at last:1931-2013


"For anyone who says yes to Jesus, For anyone who believes what Jesus said
For anyone who will just each out and take it, then God will give them this wonderful gift: 

To be born into 
a whole new Life
To be who they really are
Who God always made them to be-
Their own true selves
God's Sons and Daughters" -JSBB

"We have good fathers, you and I" (Painter Alfred Manessier to his friend the actor Charles Laughton. Chartres Cathedral, 1959)


  1. Amen. Well said Laura.
    God is good to give us such great men in our lives.

  2. This is so precious Laura. Thank you. I've been meditating on these thoughts and will probably end up quoting you after I forget where I heard it. :-) I apologize ahead of time.
