A Riverside Psalm for Christian Bryant
November 22, 1993 - May 26, 2012
Blessed were the ones
who walked in step with Christian
who ran the race with her
who danced and laughed with a true friend.
Her delight was in the ways of the Lord.
Her legs and heart were strong
with the Lord’s strength.
Her words were words of grace
and her life bore fruit in a too-short season.
We plant this tree by rushing waters
for one who did not rush,
one who stood tall: growing, bending,
reaching up to heaven.
So may we, the ones she blessed
grow in grace,
grow toward God
as once our Christian grew.
Written by Jane Henegar, Beloved Teacher, Mentor and Friend for the dedication of Christian's Tree
