Just thinking

It's coming up five years since our sweet Lucy joined our family. Which also means that it's almost five years since my sweet brother Kylie passed away. 

I have hope.

When sorrow and pain
Cause tears and grief
When memories that smart
Dim the flame of life
Hold on, there is hope

When the darkness threatens 
To steal light and joy
When loneliness comes 
And brings with it silence
Hold on, there is peace

When the questions and doubts
Are painful and real
When the answers are missing
From the pages of life
Hold on, there is love

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast
It is not proud. It is not rude or self seeking. 
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love is here. 
Hold on, love is here



  1. I lost my brother 5 years ago also. It's so hard to watch the kids grow and know he'll never see them. Tragic. God is such a comfort. Lisa~

  2. Praying for you, dear one! Miss you and love you so!
