Written for me, by a dear friend, during a trying time. It honors me to know that I can impact someone in a special way. Thank you Hector.

She is like the sky, the moon, and the stars
her daylight brings calm, joy,

and peace in ones soul
her words are as the guiding moonlight
that does not leave one in the dark
her presence is like the stars
that bring a warm glow to ones heart

She is the fresh scent of a flower

She is the voice of reason

She is the angel of God's word
She is the lifter of ones heart

As she lives, and walks throughout her day
Never noticing... 
She brings meaning to the day
She is all these things and more
 As I stop to think of all of the things
that God has given me
whether it be the warmth of the sun
the cool breeze in the summer
or the smell of millions of flowers in the meadow
I thank God for her,
for it was He who decided
to combine all of these things
into one person
I call her my lifter, my voice in the dark,
but most importantly, I call her my friend.

Thank you prettyD! yes I am feeling very special these days. I've been reminded that I'm still needed on Earth. It's good to be reminded from time to time.
Hugs <3

What beautiful words, and especially so, knowing that they were written just for you by a friend. How wonderful. I do hope that you are in a better place right now.

I am in a very good place Diane, thank you for your encouragement. God has been faithful! It's taken a few years, but I can truly say, "I am out of the dark." :)

IF I were not always suffering from a lack of faith, I'd KNOW that God wants me on earth--or I would not BE here. However..heheh..being human, God does from time to time let me see some things which have occurred--HIS WILL--as He used me, when I did not know.

So YESSS, I know EXACTLY what you mean when you write:

"I've been reminded that I'm still needed on Earth. It's good to be reminded from time to time."

Glad you are happy these days, and (though I do not know what horrors you've been through) that life is again woth living. NOW--on to do His work, whatever tat may turn out to be!

Steve- funny how I feel like I've been catapulted to do just that... His good work. And it feels great. He usually does use us when we least expect it. Surprise.. Surprise =)
