My heart hangs heavy tonight...
I feel guilty and helpless with in.
I sit here worrying about my trivial life,
while a child fights a battle he may not win.

Why do these things happen...
it just cant be part of a plan.
I wish I knew all the answers,
I wish someone could help me understand.

How does a mother do it,
how does she find the strength to deal,
A mother's love is supposed to work magic,
a mother's love is supposed to heal.

I just cant begin to imagine,
the things she must carry with her every day.
She must be so amazingly strong,
I admire her in every way.

And then there is this beautiful child,
so innocent and kind.
Why should he have to suffer like this...
these questions have no answers that I can find.

Why does life offer such painful realities,
why do some have so much, while others have it all taken away.
Sometimes I want to scream and yell,
sometimes I feel so helpless when all I can do is pray.

But I know its all out of our hands...
we have to hold strong in our faith and trust.
We have to pray that a miracle will happen
we have to pray the reasons will be just.

So tonight Lord, I ask of you ... just this one thing,
Please Lord watch over this family,
~take care of our friend Shane.~
All of Passions prays with me,
We live in your grace and glory ...in your light we remain.

Janet Marie

Beautiful work, Janet. He is in my prayers also, and I am sure all of Passions is thinking of Shane and his family.

With my prayers for all,
Elizabeth

Janet,
This one is wonderful.  He is in my thoughts and prayers.  Kind of makes you see that whatever is happening in your life right that you think is a big deal really isn't.  Puts thingsa in perspective for sure.  Very moving.

I, too, would like to see some of those unanswerable questions answered, but we can only accept what is and hope and pray for the best. Mine are with you and Shane.

Janet I know how you feel...but my dear prayer is not all you can do, it is the most you can do!

It is so very sad, and it sure does make what we go through seem trivial. Sometimes, it's just the polution of the world, the disease and such that is so rampant in today's world.

Never under estimate the power of prayer. If it is meant to be, it will be.

Shane shall be in my prayers along with his family. Thank you Janet for posting this.

Oh Janet...you are so amazing, I came on tonight wondering if I had been bothering everyone with Shane's story...what is near and dear to me may become to much for all of you, and look what you have done....I sat here for 30 minutes just composing myself enough to write..before I thought everyone here was amazing.....I was so wrong....you are all angels.  Thank you so much.  All my love to you sister of my soul...you have given me a gift that I will cherish always.  Thank you to each and every one of you as I extend the thanks from Shane and his family...strength in numbers.  Praise God for people like you!!

Butterfly, you are most welcome, thank you for both inspiring me and making me realize no matter how bad we think our lives are...we should always try to remember it could always be much worse. My heart can not imagine anything more painful than watching our children suffer.
Keep us updated on Shane and his family, and we will keep them and you, in our prayers.
love ya, jm


THANK YOU to all who replied and send your prayers and comfort.

This is so beautiful and touching, Janet Marie! I felt the same way when I read about Shane's situation in Butterflies' poem. You have expressed what I was unable to. Thank you so much. I agree too with Rebecca, prayer is the best thing we can do.

~janet...

first off to you, this was simply beautiful. you confirm what i already knew...you have a beautiful and amazing heart and soul. to you butterflies, please hang in there. shane has been in my thoughts and prayers as soon as i found out he needed them...and now my little contribution.

For Shane

Today I sit and think of you
Can't even imagine what you're going through
Just a child so innocent and sweet
Fighting so hard, not giving up in defeat
Then I think of your mother and all the pain she has to endure
And wonder what all this hurt and evil is in our lives for
Feeling helpless knowing there's nothing I can do
Except one thing...turn my thoughts to the Lord and pray for you
So dear Lord I ask of you now, if this boy you must take with you
Send your power and love to his family who will be needing it too
No matter what happens to this boy and his family, everyone please remember
The lord loves us all, his only son he did surrender!

AMY  

P.S. Janet, it is I who is honored to share this thread with you!!

beautifully written...I wrote a poem a long time ago called A mothers wish..one line in it went..They come to us from angels arms and on the wings of prayer...and I beleive that with all my heart...they are gifts from god..and it breaks my heart to know that any of them are suffering...And I am still praying for Shane and his family.

Amy this is such a beautiful poem...you are an amazing person...thank you for caring but most of all thank you all for showing there are people who care.  
Some of you have said that it certainly puts our trivial heartbreaks and bad days to shame....I've often been disgusted with myself when I have talked to Monika (Shane's mom) and have made a complaint of something in my life.....Complaints seem to come easy...until you don't hear them from people that DESERVE to have them.  Praise God for people like all of you *AW Hugs* to all of you!!


 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.
