My wounds are deep and slow to heal
My load is hard to bear
Despondent thoughts and disappointed hopes
have left me weak
O God of comfort ...care for me
Do raise me up and help me endure ,
When I'm in doubt make my hope sure
From deep dispair I turn to you
Jehovah my God my strength renew
Psalms 4:1 NWT

My heart goes out to the families and friends of the reporters that lost their lives. Its very sad that people have to harm people to get their point across. This does not solve anything and it makes matter worse. Then to find out the man comitted suicide after the shootings. We only can pray and push (pray untill something happens) that things will get better soon. I weep for the victims today NWT Romans 12:15

Long lasting grief will it ever end?
Will my mother ever smile again?
Mom I look at you and cant help but think
I am so sorry for your long lasting grief
I too lost some one
I too lost my sibling
24 years old that one would be
Long lasting grief
I can t let you over take us
NVT Psalms 55:22

As I do some reading today, I came across something interesting. We all experience pain due to the death of our close friends and family members... Some experience pain daily. On a positive note, we never know what encouragement we may get from day to day. All we can do is take one day at a time and not let that pain overtake us or cripple us. We can have hope that God will swallow up our pain forever NWT Isaiah 25: 8. This has strenghten me today......

As I read a post that talks about how we should make mends before its too late, I think about how I need to remember that our speech can pierce like a sword... Then I think is it really worth saying things that are hurtful... No its not! Make mends now before they are gone NWT Proverbs 16:24... I appreciated that reminder.

Just see yourself, just see me too;
Just see us all in a world that is new.
Think how you’ll feel, how it will be,
To live in peace, to be truly free.
No evil one will then prevail;
Rule by our God cannot ever fail.
The time will have come for a new earthly start,
The song of our praises will pour out from our…Continue

As I sit here today, I think about my paternal grandma and how she died of a broken heart. My grandfather died of kidney issues. My grandma did not last long after that. She would not eat . She would not leave house. I was young when she died but some things you never forget. Now, I think about things I could have done different. Then, I think what will help me if my husband died. I think I would want a listener. I think I would want a shoulder to cry on. I think I would want people…Continue

Can you see, with your mind’s eye,
Peoples dwelling together?

Life without tears and pain.

Cause no harm to each other.
Food will be there. All will share…Continue
