If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me,
No matter how heavy my heart is
Or how dark the moment may be

If I can remain calm and quiet
With all the world crashing about me,
Secure in the knowledge God loves me
When everyone else seems to doubt me

If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
That darkness will fade with the morning
And that this will pass away, too

Then nothing in life can defeat me
For as long as this knowledge remains
I can suffer whatever is happening
For I know God will break all of the chains

That are binding me tight in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear
For there is no night without dawning
And I know that my morning is near.

~Helen Steiner Rice~

I’mΒ really tired…

    Reminds me of a song:

    In the middle of the turbulence surrounding you
    These trying times that are so hard to endure
    In the middle of what seems to be your darkest hour
    Hold fast your heart and be assured

    This too shall pass
    Like every night that’s come before it
    He’ll never give you more than you can bear
    This too shall pass
    So in this thought be comforted
    It’s in His Hands
    This too shall pass

    The Father knows the tears you cry before they fall
    He feels your pain, His heart and yours are one
    The Father knows that sorrow’s heavy chains are strong
    But with His strength, you’ll overcome

    So set your eyes upon the mountain
    And lift your hands up to the sky
    And let His arms of love surround you
    And take you to the other side

    ~This Too Shall Pass (Yolanda Adams)

    BIG HUGS for you Jems. Take care.

    Thank you for sharing the song lyrics, my friend.


  5. Sleep,
    Sleep tonight.
    And may your dreams,
    Be realised.
    If the thunder cloud
    Passes rain.
    So let it rain.
    Rain down on me.

    Thank you, my friend.

    Hopefully sleep won’t elude me tonight.

    all of the above echoes what i wish to say and best of wishes to you. stay strong, stay focused to what’s important and leave insignificant situations out of your life. what’s in the past remains in the past, no need to live there, keep walking & look forward to the present and future.


    Ditto to your kind advice, Kris.

    Thank you.. & have a happy weekend.

  8. misti Says:

    sleep tight little one
    let the stars be your company
    don’t think too much. just rest as much as you can.

    Thank you, my friend.

    2 hours was all I had..better than none, right?
    Will try & sleep some more after this.. even if it’s only a cat’s nap.

  9. LB Says:

    Grazie, mio camerata.
