    it doesn't occur to me this time to say
    why me
    or to wonder how much more
    I can take
    I'm not agonizing as to
    why it's so hard
    or deciding that I
    must be cursed
    I haven't stopped to consider
    there's anything wrong with me
    or that it's necessarily
    all my fault
    I don't even
    feel the rage
    I just wear small stains of
    bitterness and cynicism
    that I know will come out
    in the wash
    I haven't been to this place in
    so long
    it used to be littered with the
    shattered glass of my grief
    what happened
    I don't know where it went
    the landscape is clean, with
    only new growth under my feet
    what I know is that
    this is not the end
    I don't need to question why
    it will be allright
    I am a force of good and
    life is best not taken personally
    when did this certainty
    become a part of me
    this new growth sprouted up inside
    and only now I see
    I just walked through pain with grace
    I think it's called faith

    Yes! We live by faith, not by sight.

    This is really nice.

    Isn't it satisfyingly refreshing when U realize U now have a positive mindset?

    Keep your mind right & enjoy the feel.

    Sister Gempis...
    I'm always so anxious to hear what you have to say....but on this morning
    you caused me to be washed over... with a feeling of thankfulness,...this touched
    me deeply. I've been through many struggles of the heart...but as I've heard said before,
    never be afraid of the storm clouds because when they burst forth...they're cleansing
    and behind them they leave blessings...in this case "new growth"...

    I too... looked down and felt beneath my feet...new growth
    Thanks for the stroll through this beautiful garden...
    Much love to you....

    immediately clicked into this when I read your name, so, shouldn't surprise me that this was tyte, as always. New growth always meant for me bad, you know ladies what I mean, but the way you wrote this is such a positive light, standing still and seeing who you are and taking stock. Gempis, you have a beautiful soul.
