Murdo Girl…There is no such thing as helpless

I didn’t write a blog yesterday. It was one of those days when nothing I could think of felt right.

This morning, I felt the need to sort out some feelings I was having. So many people I care about have been affected by a devastating or life changing health issue.  

Knowing there is no way to walk around the fear and pain that lies ahead, can be overwhelming. To find the strength to walk through it, is daunting, but we must in order to help ouselves or those we love.

Yesterday, we spent time with some very special friends. All of us have been affected by frightening health issues; either those of someone we love or our own.

This is how my thoughts took shape. I hope it helps those I was thinking of and others it might speak to.

Are we helpless?

I was touched by you again today. More than once I heard you say that you were going to have your way.

Just when things are going well, you unleash your kind of hell. Leaving us with fears to quell.

Some you give another chance to hug a friend or dance a dance so other’s lives they still enhance.

You thrive in darkness and keep us guessing. We know good health is such a blessing. The thought of you… beyond distressing.

“You’ve got this!” Those close to your victims say. “Fight the fight and we will pray. Should we go or can we stay?”

I have a question you can answer.Who found you and named you Cancer?

Your name can change to heart disease, or alzheimers, if you please. Whatever brings us to our knees.

If we should find ourselves there…trying hard not to despair; while on our knees let’s say a prayer.

We’ll hear a voice…a soothing tone… say, “You can’t fix this on your own. I heal the sick or bring them home. 

Don’t give the illness all the power. Turn fear into a blossoming flower, or your strength it will devour.

And if you don’t believe in Thee, borrow faith from one who knows Me. Through them it will be…Me you see.”

We are never helpless. There is a way to get through the hardest day and know that it will be okay.


A peek at tomorrows blog:

We met a couple who own a tiny home and they love it. I wrangled an invitation to see it in a little while. I’ll write about that and hopefully show you lots of pictures.

      Absolutely…I didn’t pack it. It will be hand carried by me and have a place of importance in the tiny home. I like looking at it.

      Thanks countrygirl. Sometimes I feel guilty for not being sad all the time.
