Will The Circle be Unbroken!

This post is written in response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Circles & Curves

The challenge reminded me of that old Johnny Cash  song  “Will the Circle be Unbroken”

“Will The Circle Be Unbroken”

I was standing by the window
On one cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away

Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
There’s a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. MA. 5:14-15

I said to the undertaker
Undertaker please drive slow
For this lady you are carrying
Lord I hate to see her go

Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
There’s a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

The Great Eye, Keukenhof

The Great Eye, Keukenhof

Oh, I followed close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave

Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
There’s a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

The Water Dandelion, Keukenhof

I went back home, the home was lonesome
Since my mother, she was gone
All my brothers and sisters crying
What a home so sad and alone

Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
There’s a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

Enkhuisen The Netherlands

Enkhuisen The Netherlands

We sang songs of childhood
Hymns of faith that made us strong
Ones that mother maybelle taught us
Hear the angels sing along

Will the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye Lord, bye and bye
There’s a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky

  3. Great circle pics.
    What an enormous comfort it is, when farewelling loved ones, to know that we will meet again!
    By the same token, what an incentive to prayer, while they are still living, to ensure they know Christ!
