Encounters of the heavenly kind

Grace, joy and peace

What is it about this woman, who evokes

such emotion and happy memories of times gone by?

It’s not her voice, or her face, although both are very pleasant,

and her wisdom exudes from her very pores

She’s not called Ann or Nancy, but her name has a certain ring to it;

and today she brought joy and peace, in Winfred
