What can I say...I posted this 2 years ago and it's still relavant..


Shy Angel


..So much going on.

Illness.. personal losses......money issues....knowing a grown child's pain..

 War......always war...

Is it possible for one to feel guilty about the happiness in their life? To want to hurt for those who hurt?

But I do feel the pain. It is real . My heart hurts for the world. Does that give my guilt a voice?

 I don't know.

I do know tomorrow will bring another day. One to make choices. One to maybe give a smile to someone who may need it. One to say a prayer for those hurting, scared, lonely.

And one day more to thank God for His blessings and ask Him.. "What can I do? How can I make things better?? Guide me where You want me to go. And when I complain, show self-pity, let me stop and remember..and let me feel Your arms around me as You tell me to think of others first."

Have a good tomorrow. Say your prayers. Pray for all those who've had darkness knock at their door..

It is human compassion that causes our heavy hearts. When others are suffering it seems as though we should stay small and silent and not show joyful emotions. But, there is cause for joy at times like these. You articulated it well in your questions for your Heavenly Father.
The plight of others should cause us to reflect, gain an appreciation for what we have and propel us into action by extending a hand of service and charity to ease the burdens of others.
But then, you already know that.

PS- Baby Jude is ok. He is just a bit lonely being the only kitten. We have given him a tiny Pink Panther to cuddle with and he seems to be quite content with his new nursery box friend, and I think, somehow, he knows he has a friend in Utah. :)

I don't know how people survive without prayer and a belief in a 'higher power'. Take care.

My joy is to spread happy, kind thoughts throughout the Universe and pray that someone somewhere will have a moment's peace...and a lil' humor thrown in for good measure!

Thanks sista!

I'll say it's still relevant. You made my day when you said that you'd buy a card with my artwork on it. :D God bless you, Sweetie, for all the joy you bring.

Every day you post on your blog, you are giving a gift Colleen. I don't know what I'd do without your sense of humor, compassion, and love! All gifts from a wonderful God!
