Aurora, Colorado Remembered

To the families and friends of the victims in the recent shootings in Aurora, Colorado… you each have my deepest sympathy. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to you.  Under the shadow of this unimaginable tragedy words that would normally flow from me like rivers of water now escape me.  But I found this little poem that I hope will suffice in the absence of the words that have been silenced at your loss.

 A Child Loaned
“I’ll lend you for a little time
A child of Mine.” He said.
“For you to love the while he lives
And mourn for when he’s dead.
It may be six or seven year
Or twenty-two or three
But will you, till I call him back
Take care of him for Me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you
And should his stay be brief,
You’ll have his lovely memories
As solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay
Since all from Earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there
I want the child to learn.
I’ve looked this wide world over
In my search for teacher’s true,
And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes,
I have selected you;
Now will you give him all your love,
Nor think the labour vain
Nor hate Me when I come to call
And take him back again?
I fancied that I heard them say,
“Dear Lord, They will be done,
For all the joy Thy child shall bring,
For the risk of grief we’ll run.
We’ll shelter him with tenderness,
We’ll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we’ve known,
Forever grateful stay.
But should the angels call for him
Much sooner than we planned,
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes
And try to understand.”

Peace and blessing to you all in your time of grief and sorrow.

Hello Everyone and Welcome To My Blog!

Welcome to!  This is my very first post and my very first blog!  I started this blog with a vision to open up a forum to address and share creative  ideas, thoughts, and suggestions regarding relationship issues both great and small.  I also have the hope that I or you may be able to help others who are struggling within their own relationships. 

Personally, I have found that writing helps me to heal whenever I have had a particular problem with an initimate partner or family member.  Writing can bring about new insights, new truths,  and resolve to questions or issues that may be existing within our daily personal interactions and relationships. 

So please join me in posting your thoughts, concerns, views, issues, on this subject and often touchy issue!  I look forward to this opportunity to share and grow with you!

Thank you and Happy blogging!
