    The holidays are upon us
    once again
    celebrated or not
    we think about what has been
    What has been lost
    what has been found
    memories of what can't possibly
    be recaptured tauntingly abound
    And I find myself,
    off centered
    trying, struggling to maintain,
    to center myself, for my mind has entered
    the yearly holiday zone....I try not to
    reminisce too much, but there is this weight
    so heavy, so all encompassing
    making my thoughts drag, my fate
    blowing in the ill winds of time
    I mustn't forget to pray, I shouldn't forget,
    yet I have, and shame on me for that,
    for I know it is vital for me to get
    down on my knees, have a talk with the Lord
    to show me that path, that is always there
    but unfortunately gets overshadowed,
    disguised, otherwise hidden to where
    I don't know which way to trod
    I pray to you God
    to lead me back to what has been
    everlasting, despite it all
    lead me to this blustery winter
    from this brisk fall
    whole
    and in your arms of loving care...free
    I ask that you would
    center me

    Trying to stay the course throughout the rest of the year. Not easy, but I understand what the weight is, and that God will help me through. Thank you much for the response in flow brotha Rich.

    Take gods hand and no longer walk in the worries mortal man
    Just stick to "his" plan and your woes will be slide away like running sand
    See God has direction for your souls protection he is always on like a 24/7 internet connection :geek:
    See the devil sends into your life pop-ups and nasty spam but the Lord will center your soul just clasp ya hand.
    sister watz you are already centered and this is true you don't have to find faith because faith has already found u!

    Python ;)

    Where there is faith there is hope, indeed brotha Rich.

    "sister watz you are already centered and this is true you don't have to find faith because faith has already found u!" Wow, Python, that was an awfully sweet thing to say. And I am humbled that you said it. Thank you brotha.

    With prayer brings hope, without hope, well, all appears bleak. Thank you gempis, let's keep our chins up.
