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

Heart's Strength


she comes here each day
in a state of dejection
waiting and hoping...

but not for long though
such is the human spirit
marked by resilience...

soon she wakes up to
face the rising sun with hope
second chance awaits...

for life does not end
where love comes to its sore death
a fresh start unfolds...

Your last words reminded me of this line from "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by the late, great George Harrison:

"I don't know why
nobody told you
how to unfold your love"

Nice piece, PinkLady!

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.
