Reassuring Words

The last turkey sandwich has been eaten, visiting relatives have returned home, Thanksgiving goes into the memory bank.  Right behind it is the craziness of Christmas, only 23 days away.  Those 23 days will be filled with decorating and parties and food and shopping and present wrapping.  While there is much joy to the season, it can also be stressful and sometimes a little sad as we think about people who are no longer with us or family members who will be celebrating the holidays away from home.

As I was thinking about the days ahead and hoping to keep them in perspective, I came across these words saved and then forgotten in the bottom of my purse.    

I believe in the sun, even when it is not shining.

I believe in love, even when feeling it not.

I believe in God, even when God is silent.

Somehow they gave me comfort and reassured me that no day is one we cannot get through.  I hope the same is true for you no matter how you spend the next 23 days.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

    Linda, that is one of my favorite thing the choir sings too. I think it was found written on the walls of one of the camps during the holocaust.
