Just For Today . . . on mourning . . .9/20/11

Dear Holy Friends,
This year will definitely be one of the toughest years of my life. It seems struggles and mourning come back to back like our recent rains have. My heart is flooded. Writing through tough times is necessary, but I usually try to share more the good things. This morning I wrote about mourning and felt God wanted me to pass it on. So, this poem is for all who mourn.
In His Grip, Chandra
On Mourning
the sun still rises
then it sets,
it's like nature
somehow forgets,
life continues on
how can it be,
nothing normal
not that I see,
everywhere I look
nothing has changed,
except in my heart
nothing's the same,
walking through the house
trying hard to sleep
then the sun rises
and it sets,
God in my darkness
never forgets,
moments of comfort
in this grief,
Only He can offer
such relief.
~Chandra Lynn Smith, 9/20/11~
