The Skeleton by GK Chesterton

The Skeleton by GK Chesterton
Chattering finch and water-fly
Are not merrier than I;
Here among the flowers I lie
Laughing everlastingly.
No; I may not tell the best;
Surely, friends, I might have guessed
Death was but the good King's jest,
It was hid so carefully.

Rest in joy, Craig Smith, pioneer homeschooling father. I have been privileged to be with the Smith family here in New Zealand for the last four weeks. Two months ago today Mr Smith was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. On Friday night God took him home. It's a terrible loss to everyone who knows him but we live in the sure and certain hope of the resurrection!
