maybe difficult, one thing I know is true.
God of Peace and Love, has His Angels watching over you.

a peace that will some day come,
I know God cares, and God still answers prayers.
that happen in our life, will work out for our good
we can not understand:
agony has a place within God's master plan.
If we could
see around the bend, a year ahead or maybe even two.
begin to understand the things, God has brought us through.

is still pain within my heart
and a void
to which there are no cures.

so glad to know until it does,
rest assured that God's love and peace are real.

Joy in the Morning
As we make
it to the top of the hill
behind at where we've been,
to believe we made it, but here we are at last.
a look at what awaits us beyond the next ridge,
to realize that our lives have been extremely blessed,
lives we have touched and the lives that have touched us.
that the places we will go
exceed the places we have been.
to the mountains from them we will get our strength,
that we have been can scarcely hold a light,
joy that will come in the morning from the tears we have shed tonight.

So far, today,
I've done all right. I haven't gossiped or lost my temper.
I haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty, or self centered. I'm really
happy about that so far. But in a few minutes I'm going to be getting
out of bed and then I'm going to need a lot of help. Thank you!
