faith

acceptance
 
we start all over
every morning we wake up
we let go
all things we had
the day before
things we lullabied about
all night to give us
a decent rest
help heal our soul
for the next moment
the next breath we take
from our faith we know
we believe
is a healing taken in
 
we wake up
we smile
and we repeat
a new day
a new set of things
different circumstances
familiar to a routine
to endure
 
again
 
take the punches
roll
accept the pain
smile
yes the bruises are there
purple red and blue
we cope with
 
we pinch ourselves
alive we are
spirits soar
we accept
we move on
enliven
we repeat
we have faith
we believe
the sun is always there
behind a dark cloudy day
and we carry on

The power of prayer is in its miracle. Light is there at all times.

Day to day life, you summed it up. Sometimes it seems like a mystery,
then you realize it’s Oh so real. Enjoyed.

Yes. And no two days in our life are the same, amazing.

I have not seen the movie and will see it this shelter-in time as we eat, pray and love. Love Julia Roberts. Beautiful pretty woman.

Thanks for liking Brod.
