Getting Through



the storm continues
tumultuous waters roll
so loud I can't feel
****
it fogs up my head
can't think of anything else
it is always there
****
i'm grabbing onton tight
to the lifeline that was thrown
and praying for peace

Beautiful, and the picture is amazing... it says so much.
Peace is truly elusive but sometimes there, we just don't recognize it for what it is.
Sending you lots of blessings and peaceful thoughts.

krissy said...

You poor soul......

Between the music, the poem and the saddness I see in your heart, I have cried some tears for you too.

God is good. Trust me...he's been there for me too. Just hold on to his hand tight and let him lead you.

Just to let you know, Brittany and I are wanting to meet you sooo bad. Your our fav! I'm working on it. How far is Minneapolis for you. Maybe I'll start a fundraiser to buy a plane ticket for Brit to fly here!!!!

Just remember, you have a friend here! I love my fellow Packer gal!
I'm a phone call away and I would drive all the way there to see you.

Jeni said...

I think of you often during my days, of the struggle you and your family are in right now and I pray that things will begin to level out -for you, for your Dad too.
In my life now, my dear aunt found her peace a week ago today. And though my cousins, my children, grandchildren and I very much miss what she brought to our lives, we are also at peace with this too, knowing she is in a much better place now and having so many wonderful memories of her over the years she was part of our lives here. Sending you only the best wishes now in your search.

painted maypole said...

praying for your peace, as well.

krissy said...

Hello sweetie....I keep hoping that your days are better. Brittany and I agreed to Chicago for a meet. I'm hoping to cheer you up!

Smile through your tears! Laugh through your heartache. Relish in the love that surrounds you......

Hugs!

Laura said...

God speed.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
