Lift up your Spirit during this Time of Sorrow


Life may not be what you expected, but there is a reason you have life
For all of the pain and affliction you have endured in your life don’t let it have prestige over you
Take hold of yourself and your life

We are in the presence of a recession, tornados, hurricanes, and floods
It may have taken something from you, but not everything
Take the strength left in you and strive for survival

Life is a blinded shield
With no cover
Spreading agony

The world in which we live
Unleashes nothing but bitterness
The malicious finds people who are weakened
To strike a deadly blow
And tear down their happiness
You have to find cheerfulness
Look within yourself
And ask who you are
And what you want
Your guidance is inside you
Spread your wings and soar
Because there’s no giving in
Who are these people to cast judgment upon you?
They’re not almighty, no not one
God is the only almighty, Alpha, and Omega

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
