    reborn in the midst of tragedy...

    forgiveness is powerful.

    for the positive of mind
    something good can come from the worst of things.

    i'm sorry for your sufferings
    but your strength is apparent
    whether that came as a result of your sufferings
    or
    before your sufferings

    you are blessed
    to be able to stand under the weight of such turmoil.

    peace&manyblessings

    There's healing for your sorrow
    Healing for your pain
    Healing for your spirit
    there's shelter from the rain
    Lord send your healing
    for this we know
    there is a balm in Gilead

    Excerpt from Richard Smallwood's Healing
