If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

Of Dying and Living

For what is it to die

but to stand naked in the wind

and to melt into the sun?

And what is it to cease breathing

but to free the breath

from its restless tides,

that it may rise

and expand and seek God


Only when you drink

from the river of silence

shall you indeed sing.

And when you have reached

the mountain top,

then you shall begin

to climb.

And when the earth

shall claim your limbs
then shall you

truly dance.

From The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

Wishing you all a time of PEACE, REFLECTION
and HAPPINESS this Lenten Season!

Blessings to all,

I love this, and have never read it before, even though Khalil Gibran is one of my favorites. Thank you for sharing this. It really makes death feel less frightening doesn't it?
Wishing you a wonderful weekend, and much love<3

Angela, death is Divine. This is why it doesn't lie in our hands. Walk with HIM always. Take His hand and be led into the light. Have a blessed Good Friday!

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
