29 July: Saints Martha, Mary and Lazarus, Bethany.


By Sheila Billingsley.

All through the remaining days 
You watched,
You knew,
You listened.
Your heart must have murmured, Abba. 

Their faces,  
Familiar, anxious for you, 
Their voices, soft in  your company 
Lingering, hesitating to leave your side, 
Sensing unknowingly the closeness  
Of your Abba. 

So loyal 
Their bond as yet untested, 

Gathered in love’s security 
In Bethany 
Accepting their offering 

Just to be with them 
These final days. 
Their comfort, 
Your pain. 

Your constant silent murmur for them,
