THE DEATH OF THE QUEEN

Scarcely had I posted the piece about 'Games and Goals' yesterday, than the news broke of the death of the Queen. We have all been aware for some time of the Queen's increasing frailty, but nevertheless her death yesterday came as a surprise and a shock. Much will be said and written in the days to come about her life, her times, her character, her legacy, above all her constancy. I will not add to all that, only to reflect on what a lovely way to die: at home, surrounded by her family, quickly and easily, without hospitalization, a peaceful slipping away into the everlasting arms of her heavenly Father, hers and ours.

It is the end of an era for all of us. Monarchs come and go; times change; old landmarks disappear. Only One never changes, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Maker of heaven and earth.


Faithful one, so unchanging Ageless one, you're my rock of peace Lord of all I depend on you I call out to you, again and again I call out to you, again and again


You are my rock in times of trouble You lift me up when I fall down All through the storm Your love is, the anchor My hope is in You alone
