There are times when the best of us
get hit by the lowest of feelings,
when depression seems to fly swiftly in,
and we've become Alice with low ceilings...

Pray with me, please, for one of our own
who needs the knowledge of freedom's flight...
keep this poet safe, Oh Lord,
until the day doesn't seem like night...

Thank you.

I too have known this feeling.
My thoughts and prayers are there to hopefully comfort and uplift this dear member.
I wish I could soothe the empty place inside your heart where tears are born.
Heart hugs, Nancy.

*Thank you Karilea for letting us know to gather the prayer circle once again*

Well-penned, Sunshine!  Add my prayers and good wishes for a lighter spirit to prevail for your friend and anyone who is despondent or depressed.

Always ... in all ways, I would lift our friends in prayerful vigil~

Kari darling heart this is beautiful and whoever you are feel the light it seeks to reunite you to your soul. I can almost see the arms of hope surrounding you, take care sweet one and remember you are special

My Choices

My choices are few he said so sadly
Then he shrugged his shoulders helplessly
Youíre not seeing clearly, look once more
Youíll find solutions that you didnít before
Chances are, if you seek them youíll find
A way for you to have some peace of mind
Donít give up so easily look and see
Youíll find the answers there eventually

I canít go on or walk this path of pain
Thereíre so many tears they fall like rain
He bowed his head and I saw the fear
That weighted him, kept him bound here
I touched his hand with sympathy
Then softly said please listen to me
Youíve given in and feel touched by blight
Seek instead the path shining bright

Itís hopeless he uttered in a weary way
I canít face the thought of another day
I watched in sadness the tears he shed
As he uttered the cry I wish I were dead
Donít give up I said youíll get through
Trust in hope and believe as I do
Donít stay in the shadows afraid of the night
Lift your eyes and seek out love and light

Your choices are many, just look and see
Seek out truth, and youíll have victory

Marsha

Love and warm stuff
as always
Mushy



Tomorrow is another day I don't know what it holds
but I can face the future with courage brave and bold

From the darkness comes a light.
Bright enough to blind the demons.
I too have been there.
Prayers are on the wing~

I also know of this demon of depression.
Please, whoever you are, know that you are
not alone. There are so many here at Passions
who care. I do and all these others do, too.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
With love and heart hugs,

I know first hand how encouraging this place can be. I owe so much to each of you that this seems an inadequate response. But certainly my prayers go out at this time. I pray for peace, strength and hope.
