I knew Oumie had the knee surgery scheduled, but didn't know when. :(

Best wishes Oumie! May this operation be very successful, and I wish you a speedy recovery! :gflower:

:) Just a little Poem. :gflower:

The Sun Will Shine (Unknown.)

"The sun will shine tomorrow
The rain will somehow end
This is not only a promise
It’s just the way it is

Bad times don’t last forever
The tough times they never stay
The heartache and the let down
Will soon go away

In times of deep sadness
The pain is all too real
And it’s hard to believe
That with time the hurt will heal

The dark clouds that hang above
Will eventually move on
And the storms that dance around
Will soon be gone

Stay strong and keep in mind
That again, the sun will shine" :pray:

It Takes Courage
by Author Unknown

It takes strength to be firm,
It takes courage to be gentle.
It takes strength to conquer,
It takes courage to surrender.
It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubt.
It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.
It takes strength to feel a friend's pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.
It takes strength to endure abuse,
It takes courage to stop it.
It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on another.
It takes strength to love,
It takes courage to be loved.
It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live. :D

Philip, that is so beautiful, thank you. :gflower:

We never know how many people are needing courage to go on, to carry a silent burden. There are times when all that we can do is surrender.

This is for anyone out there, facing any kind of difficulty.... finding it difficult to believe that there are loving hands...

:gflower: To all our Friends and family out there. :)
...Thinking of you and your "leeetle sister" Carol. :gflower: :k

God is Always There

"We often feel as though
God is far away
And we often feel that He
Is distant when we pray

So often we feel lonely,
Not knowing where to turn
Just a touch from God above,
Our longing spirits yearn

So many times in our lives,
God seems slow to act
We cry out in desperation,
But it's faith we often lack

For God is not being slow
In coming to our aid
He comes through in His time,
We just need to learn to wait

The Lord is never distant,
He is there by our side
And continues to walk with us
Through the storms in our lives

He always hears our hearts cry
And answers all our prayers,
He won't leave us all alone,
For God is always there".
