Seen from the outside, all these trials are frightening. We wondered if we could ever confront anything similar. But each step is accompanied by a necessary grace. – Chiara Corbella Petrillo, A Witness to Joy

May God bless you. May God lead you every step of the way, giving you strength for each moment, providing you with courage for each trial.

For this is all that we really need. Not to look so far away but to be right where we are, clinging to His hand and trusting in His heart.

He is there with you now. He gives you everything you need for this very moment as He carries you upon His arms.

I Love You Now

I see you,
I feel you now,
Here beside me,
Here where I also stand.

Let not the past
Trouble you
Let no heartache
Take you away
From my arms.

Is it not enough
That I hold your hand
Is it not enough
That I have come?

Think not of
your worries
For each day
that has not yet come.

No future can spoil
This moment
None of your tomorrows
Can steal this hour
That’s yours and mine.

Cast away your burdens
Let still each anxious thought,
For I am here with you
I give you all of me
And I love you Now.

Peace is what I leave with you; it is my own peace that I give you. I do not give it as the world does. Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid. – John 14, GNT
