Remember… there is a deeper strength
and an amazing abundance of peace
available to you.
Draw from this well,
call on your faith to uphold you.
Life continues around us,
even when our troubles seem to stop time.
There is always good in life.
Take a few minutes to distract yourself
from your concerns-
long enough to draw strength from a tree
or to find pleasure in a bird’s song.
Return a smile,
realize that life is a series of levels,
cycles of ups and downs-
some easy, some challenging…
Through it all, we learn;
we grow strong in faith;
we mature in understanding.
The difficult times are often the best teachers,
and there is a good to be found in all situations.
Reach for the good.
Be strong, and don’t give up.
