When it all goes wrong and you are tired of the fight. When the world seems dark like a moonless night. When you feel lost, far from the light. Hold on, do not give in or give up.
In those moments when you barely stand, when doubt and fear clasp your hands, have courage. You are not forgotten; remember, you are begotten of Love.
The things you struggle with are seen by the Savior by whom you are redeemed. Take all your trouble, place it with Jesus; His mercy and grace are sufficient for every need. Through Christ, you are made an overcomer, latch on to His promise with faith and prayer. Let the Lord relieve your cares.
I returned an item to my Sister-in-Law, Linda, this afternoon. We had some pleasant conversation. I was happy to visit.
Then she said this is a birthday/Christmas present, and gave me these lovely things. I was surprised and joyful. I mean, WOW! I cannot wait to finish my current journal, though sadly, it will be a while.
We talked about church, and I said I was not going. She invited me to come to her church, which was my church before, and that may happen.
I need more personal interaction. I have very nearly become a hermit.
Anyway, beautiful things given to me by a very dear person.
The relationship with Time is unreliable, Past invades present Without an invitation Giving no hint or warning. Although sometimes things Crop up like pleasant hauntings, Others much darker. Living in the stream wavers, Unfolds personality. Thoughts flinch in passing – Some neglected on arrival, Superstitious fear, If held, could these manifest? Clear concentration, be blest. Treasures run away Appear again in vision, Maybe now gain, claim, The mystery retains charm What comes, comes, as it will, still. The search, clarity, Love is the treasure, fullest Measure of life lived Whether past, present, future, All is in sharing, caring. Time unravels Pieces everywhere, chasing Forever in fog Blindfolded except when free Accorded chances to see.
