    I have this poem hanging on my printer and read it so often, it is tatooing into my brain. Enjoy!

    Every Day

    Every day I need you, Lord
    But this day especially,
    I need some extra strength
    To face whatever is to be.

    This day more than any other day
    I need to feel you near,
    To fortify my courage
    And to overcome my fear.

    By myself, I cannot meet
    The challenge of the hour,
    There are times when humans help,
    But we nedd a higher power.

    To assist us bear what must be born,
    And so my dear Lord, I pray-
    Hold on to my trembling hand
    And be near me today.

    that is so very beautiful and so true....made me think of my grandfather who is dying right now and suffering immensely (maybe I should post for a prayer?)....I am at a loss..I hate seeing him die so slowly, wasting away, and gasping for each breath...it rips my heart out...I will keep this to help me deal with the situation....yesterday I was in tears about it, and felt hopeless......

    Thank you so much for that....

    Jaimy, I will say a prayer for your grandfather and for you at this difficult time.
