be still and know...


the sun was ready to blindfold me
but just then i woke up.
deliberately, i put on my mask
determined to face the world - 
strong and brave, confident and secure.
as time passes by, the heavier it becomes
til the burden sinks so deep within
only loneliness can find it.
oh how i long to lay it down,
but where do i rest this heavy load?
i enter my inner sanctum
searching, hoping, praying.
and as i crumble to my knees
I call out HIS name - JAH!!!
R-A-S-T-A-F-A-R-I...

HELLO LOVE - oh how I feel your faith, desperate and strong. I sense a fear and willingness to surrender to the unknown. I battle such storms daily, they rage within and then quiet as I surrender to my truth. I am here, on my knees by your side - fists clenched and then folded in surrendered prayer. Feel me.
Love Gail
peace....

Sending hugs, dear friend!
Sometimes the load is heavy
and that is when we pick you up
and carry you with love.

It's been too long since I've connected with you. You seem melancholy but still you shine brightly. Sending you love and hugs and hope that your sadness will be remedied. Love and peace my friend, Lyn
