"There is a crack in everything; That's how the light gets in..." From Anthem by Leonard Cohen

These are lovely quotes that beautifully speak to the strength that pain can bring into our lives. One thing is for sure, life is hard. When it shakes your world, steel yourself and look within, the Holy Spirit resides there.

In the Storm

When life hurts,
Pick up a pen.
Pour the inside out,
Don't let the outside in.

Still yourself, breathe,
Cease the flurry within.
Whisper a prayer,
Let the healing begin.

Bridle your thoughts,
For anger can fetter.
Sift through the anguish,
Hoping, waiting for better.

Rest in somber silence,
Shrouded in a melody.
Raptured by quiet beauty,
A heavenly symphony.

Lift your face to the clouds,
Glory in the warmth of the sun.
Meditate, the stars on high,
Trinity, Father, Holy Spirit, Son.

Shielded by the One who knows,
The One who bore sorrow, sin and strife,
Held, by His mighty hand,
Infused now with peace and eternal life.

Prodigal Child, I must let you go...

Prodigal child, I must let you go,
where to I will not know.
Shot like an arrow from a bow,
 I must just let you go.

Hope wanted you safe and warm, 
Far from choices, which might harm.
But your future is in God's control, 
So Hope must let you go.

Love had wished to keep you here,
Instead of wandering, far and near,
Sheltered from a world of woe,
But, Love must let you go.

 Faith believes and watched you leave,
Trusting angels a life to weave,
Although hearts may break in two,
Prodigal child, this Faith must do.

May Hope, Love and Faith sustain,
For these three will remain
All are praying, for your way to turn,
Until then, no bridges will burn.

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
1 Corinthians 13:13

Being a Mommy is hard...
