The Son of Man will suffer much
and be rejected by the priests.
For all of those overcome by grief,
Carry your cross and fallow me.

Three days from death he will rise again
forever to set your spirit free.
For any who would forget themselves,
Carry your cross and fallow me.

Being ashamed of the word
that has proven itself beyond belief
will limit those to regain their lives.
Carry your cross and fallow me.

When His angels flood the earth
to lead those who obey His preach.
Their lives will be given back to them,
Carry your cross and fallow me.

Do you gain the world itself
when you lose your life for what you can see,
taste and touch? Of course not!
Carry your cross and fallow me.

Unorthodox mabey, but I grow on you.

He is Love and I love to follow Him ...

To walk with Him besides us and within our hearts, makes every step enjoyable, even when sometimes we feel the burden of life's challenges heavy upon our shoulders.

Thank you for your heartfelt words, which make for a loving reminder.

Love,
Margherita

I am mastered totally by Love."

Marg, I totally agree with you. Even though we may be worlds apart we do have plenty of common ground to stand upon. Thank you for your wonderful responses, I was hoping you would enjoy it.

Even in the toughest times, through Jesus Christ we can find the strength to carry on.
