Courage by Bumblebee

I am my father’s daughter.
I have my mother’s strength.
Resilient through adversity,
Standing firm, and yet at arm’s length.

For every mantra I’ve proclaimed,
Harmful pastimes I’ve profaned,
I recall a clearer time
When hallowed proved Divine.

A time when Light meant clarity
Seeing beyond what was in front of me.

Remembering to Whom, I gave the Glory.
For it is He who shines all around me.

Courageous when I am at a loss,
burdened by my shameful cross.
He calms this tumultuous soul
And gives the peace, I seek for.

So when the night comes ’round once more,
and fear knocks the resonant door..

I shall reach for that Courage.
I shall call Him to save me once more.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you all have a chance to visit Second Life’s Water Lantern Festival. There are several donation kiosks throughout the event, and the landing point holds some pertinent information, on how we can be a direct source of help to our South East Asian friends.

One thing before I go.. There really aren’t words in any known language to describe the sadness and loss among my filipino brethren. Though my own family was further north from where Yolanda landed, I am still getting reports of extended family members who haven’t checked in. And so, while ‘every’ little bit counts, I would also ask for your prayers and thoughts as well ❤
