POETRY:          REMEMBER GOD LOVES YOU

When sickness is on you,

and health takes a blow.

And when joys all desert you,

and energy is low.

Remember, God loves you.

When pain comes at night,

and sleep disappears.

When nothing feels right,

and you are riddled with fears,

Remember, God loves you.

When people are curt,

or ignore what you say,

when other’s words hurt,

and friends keep away.

Remember, God loves you.

When life feels all empty,

and weighed down with care.

When tears come in plenty,

with no one to share.

Remember, God loves you.

When burdened by guilt

and plagued by the past.

When faith starts to wilt

or doubts loom too vast.

Remember, God loves you

JESUS FALLS FOR THE FIRST TIME

It’s not that you didn’t try.

It’s not that you wouldn’t have carried it

all the way if you could have.

It’s just that you had to operate

within the limitations of your strength.

God knows you pushed them back again

and again.

More than you’d thought possible,

more than anyone could have expected.

You tried all right.

But in the end,

it all became too much for you.

It bore you down, and you stumbled, fell.

It’s not that you didn’t try.

From: The Dream of Learning Our True Name.  Kathy Galloway, 2004 Wild Goose Publications

VOICES FROM THE DARKNESS

There are so many people who are hurting right now.  

This is for all of you, all of US.  Be strong, and remember:

  Bad times don’t last forever – it WILL get better…

Life is precious, Love is kind,

If you seek then you shall find.

If this wish can make it true

All good things shall come to you.

 Hide not away, come to the light

NEVER give up without a fight.

The Dark is cold, but the Sun is warm

We shall not let you come to harm.

You’re not alone, your friends are Here

Don’t give in – defeat the fear.

It’s not all-powerful, it CAN be beat

You’re too good to deserve defeat.

So stay alert, of the Dark beware

If we can, we will help you – this we swear.
