This week was a hard one for me.
Between the migraines and news on TV,
I was left heartsick and weary.

And the father who cast their lot.
Tears fell for loved ones left behind,
Who hold dear memories of two short lives –
Those who can only wonder “Why?”

I have to trust it’s in God’s hands;
Somehow part of a greater plan.
Do not fret because of evil men…
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him…
In His words (Psalm 37), I am comforted.
Out of despair, shine rays of hope.
There will always be evil, I know –
But its weight cannot rest in my soul.
There is beauty around me,
Waiting for my eyes to see –
Ready for my lungs to breathe.
