When the road is rough,
Hold on to the words of the Master.
When your pace has slowed
And you just can’t go any faster.
Put your hand in His
For He NEVER will let you go;
On a mountaintop
Or the lowest depths you know.
Just wait on the Lord
For He will renew your strength.
With wings like an eagle,
Friend – you will rise again.
When you wake or sleep,
The Lord watches over you;
Your soul He keeps –
His word is forever true.
He’s the King of Kings;
Jesus, your greatest Friend
He’s Alpha and Omega,
There from beginning to end.

Love and blessings always
There’s a promise in the Bible for you;
the answer to your heart’s cry,
Dear Friend – if you open its pages
and just read .. you’ll soon see why,
Despite the despair and the darkness,
there is hope for you today,
and it’s found in the Lord Jesus Christ
for all who will call on His Name!
A good place to begin to find out about the love of God
is by reading in the Bible the gospels, found in the New Testament.
(eg. start with St John)

St John 3: 16
For God so loved the world,
that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish
but have eternal life”

God bless you !
Remembering the bereaved of Charleston, 2015.
Dearest Friends, I wrote this poem in 2012, but revised it recently on behalf of the dear family, friends and loved ones of the dear souls who lost their lives in the terrible massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston recently. In times of grief, it can be very hard for many to cope. This poem is in support of the bereaved and any who may have suffered the loss of loved ones in terrible tragedies such as this.
Though the media spotlight may be gone, thoughts of you remain in our hearts
~ GOD BLESS YOU ALL ~
