THE BARD OF KINGSFORD

(An Acrostic of Acknowledgement)
(written in past tense for the sake of rhyme)

MOTHERLY
Loving mother to me and you.
Happy Mother's Day, dearest Moo.

UNASSUMING
Beautifully gifted, never proud.
Gently positive, never loud.

RADIANT
With the joy of her glorious Lord,
Always rejoicing in His Word.

IMPISH
With roguish sense of humour quick,
She never missed a single trick.

ENTHUSIASTIC
Whole-hearted in all she believed.
Eager to help whatever need.

LOYAL
To her Lord, her church, her friends.
Serving their and not her own ends.

Thank you Muriel for your love,
Twenty-three years of treasure trove.
We'll look forward to Eternal Life together,
When we'll praise God forever and ever.
May you and Arthur be wonderfully happy and serene in the bosom of your family.
Love in Christ,

John, Judy, Liz (and Rusty)

Muriel with daughter Bronwyn and friends

So Muriel. We all thank you for your love and care and allowing us to share in your life. We thank you for being such an encourager, a true blue 'Barnabas' in every sense of the word. We will surely miss you, Muriel and Arthur, but we know God will be with you as He has always been. We would pray that God w ill go before you as you move to Tamworth and settle there in the near future. Because we know you will both be in God's good hands, we are comforted and trust that peace and joy will remain in your hearts
