THE OWENS FAMILY
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;
Life is but a Stopping Place
Life is but a stopping place, a pause in what’s to be
A resting place, along the road to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys, different paths along the way.
We all were meant to learn some things, But never meant to stay.
Our destination is a place far greater than we know.
For some, The journey is quicker, for some the journey is Slow.
And when the journey finally ends, we’ll claim a great reward and
find an everlasting peace together with the Lord.
