Solid edges

Your first cries were soothed with my milk and heartbeat.

Hugs and kisses calmed most else.

Band-aids and bacitracin covered your childhood.

But now you’ve graduated to anguish…

and I cannot stop your tears –

even if I went to the ends of the earth.

The love you’ve lost wasn’t mine to control.

You can only heal yourself now.

I pray that time

and good memories

help you to live with the hurt.

Mass Rehab

The Sunday sermon reminded me of three life lessons I have found to be important and true:

1) Challenges that are thrown our way are designed to see beyond ourselves. 

Difficult times help us to find strength and abilities we didn’t know we had.

2) Faith is meant to be lived.  

Actively believing and trusting produces patience and peace.

3) Love greatly.

We must be open to love and spread it like wild fire with everyone we meet. 

These important lessons make life easier. Push through the struggles, believe in a purpose and spread your gratitude. 

Life will be at its best.

 It’s true.
