You are a survivor, your inspiration
touches all who are blessed to be in your presence.
May the heartache you have known be a stepping stone to compassion for others,
as God would have it so.
The faith he has in our ability to turn to him when
life is too heavy a burden,
is such a blessing and a deep privilege.
May the joys and wonders you have experienced bring you closer to an
understanding of the spirit
that moves among us all.
May you go forth in life's journey and use these experiences in ways that help
others; for each of us needs someone,
and may you always be a beacon
distance for one, or many.
May you always find joy in the simple things, for the "simple" things in life
are often the most complex.
May you always find love
in a world often filled with hate,
and may you make a
difference in the lives you are privileged to brush by...
May you always find God
at the heart of everything good.
May you always see your trials as privileges,
knowing that God watches with
in the knowledge that both of you together can handle any adversity.
promises faithfully to work everything
out for our good,
if we but only love
May you always have an extra ounce
or perhaps a pound or two,
of love to share
with others along the way.
May you always delight in the wonder of the world around you.
Oh, May you always.........
