Tomb Sweeping Day is Friday 4 April 2008

What a wonderful occasion this holiday is. This time of year is also called Ching Ming.

Thinking about this day brings to mind those members of my family that have passed on..

I will visit the cemetery this weekend to clean the area, bring flowers and spend quiet time in remembrance of my loved ones that have gone on before me.

I will carry on a conversation while I am there. Funny how we can have conversations with folks who are only with us in Spirit. A wonderful time to reflect on our love for all of our family.

I will enjoy the visit and I will leave with joy in my heart.

Sometime during my visit I will recall the words of this wonderful song. When the music and words begin to flow through my mind's eye, I will let myself pray and speak words to my maker in some unknown language. Listen here.

God Bless you and your families.

Here is a link which explains the Tomb Sweeping Day more fully.

Have a safe and wonderful weekend.
