Holding On To Faith


As I look at this drama called life
Trying to make sense of all the chaos,
I see that life goes on, and there is joy too.
If there come hurt and betrayal from some
Who I had thought were my friends,
Some others come along to heal my heart
And I feel whole again.
This losing and this gaining have taught me
To hold on to dear faith;
If on one side we are robbed,
On the other side is God's grace.

They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for -- The BIG HIM surely ensures that we are not left to lurk.

Great Weekend Ayesha....

God empties our hands first in order to fill them with more valuable gifts(Grace)
Thanks Ayesha for sharing your wisdom.
God bless.

The last two lines are just wonderful, and very true!

That's Krishna's way of making us close Him :-). I fully agree with you.

And I love this Krishna picture a lot. He has added a feather to your poem :-)

Keep smiling :) Best wishes.

Abraham Lincoln wrote thus to his son's teacher:

" He will have to learn, I know,
that all men are not just,
all men are not true.
But teach him also that
for every scoundrel there is a hero;
that for every selfish Politician,
there is a dedicated leader...
Teach him for every enemy there is
a friend,
It will take time, I know;"

Very true. In this circus of life with too many ongoings, one can only let faith float. Good one Ayesha!!
