Weather the Storm with Love
Instead of giving power to storms in my life,
I started doing more, giving more, praying more,
and sharing my love with you.
I am thankful.
I stay positive.
I work at staying away from negativity. I show and tell people how to keep the faith, and yet I work everyday to stay in faith.
I keep going.
I keep moving.
I keep trying.
My very courageous friend Sarah, called me from Texas, a little before the storm to let me know she received her LoveSurvived T-shirt. As always, she was sweet loving and concerned for my well-being (She’s like this to everyone;You’d love her too!). Even though she has been battling the pain from Crohn’s disease nearly all of her life, this time she was scared and couldn’t understand why so few doctors were there to help her. All she wanted was to be relieved of the pain. The hurricane hit. She was scared, but her pain subsided as she went along with her husband, Danny on the front line each day to help those impacted by the storm genuinely working to take the pain away from others. She has that special gift of love, and I love her.
Guess what? You have the gift of love too, but at times you can’t see it because it is often hidden by those storms called hate, envy, jealousy, strife, and insecurity. The gift of love has always been with you. You are love, and I love you.
Prayers to All in the midst of a storm,
What if you knew from even in the womb?
The day you would die in
Would you cry?
Still would you try?
Knowing your day would come
Would you do all you should?
If you knew the joy and your pain
Your losses your gains
Would you believe in each day?
To make a difference to pave the way
No matter how long
Your dances your song
A repetition of sound
A message for us to keep living loving
And learning about life however long
Life isn’t short
It’s an abundance of time
You will leave physically when called
But it’s your spirit, your beauty, and your melody
That will stay in this world to help us see
What’s right with us, not wrong?
How many times have you failed?
Your list is long
But each with a success
So give it another try and
