Good words from God

I think we all need something to liven us up

after the events that have taken place!

"When we come to it

We must confess that we are the possible...

We are the miraculous, the true wonders of this world

Free to choose our ends, and our new beginnings

That is when, and only when...

We come to it"

Maya Angelou

from her poem, 'A Brave And Startling Truth'

Faith is the bird that feels the light

when the dawn is still dark.

Sir Rabindranath Tagore

Keeping Faith

The bird that sings long before the sun has risen

is strong evidence of faith. For that bird trusts

the sky will soon lighten, the sun will

rise, and the world will come alive.

It is when the bird won't sing at

such a time that we know it has lost faith

in the great continuum of things.

Even when things seem darkest for us, we can still sing.

Even in our grief or loneliness or fear, we can find

a voice within us that will help us have faith that all things change,
all wounds heal, all is eased

through the passage of time.

We hear people tell us things get better.

They do. Of that we can be certain, for it's as sure

as the rising sun. There isn't a day that

won't have light. There isn't a night

that won't have a rising sun at its end.

There isn't a problem that won't have a solution,

a teardrop that won't have a smile,

a weary soul that won't be energized once again.

Tonight we can sing, for we can have faith in the rising sun.

There is hope because there is always change.
