So I haven't been feeling well and have spent much of my time reading blogs, facebook and other internet activities, while in bed. Don't ask my how my children are doing - I'm hoping to make it up to them when I feel better.
And while these internet activities have helped to distract me, it hasn't helped me to feel better. (By the way, I should say, I am feeling better). Anyway, I have come across some gems/phrases that have helped me to feel better.
"Eyes that are wet now, ere long will be tearless,
Blessings await you in doing what's right."
- Do What Is Right, hymn #237, from Hymns of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
"Jesus, Savior, Pilot me, over life's tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll, Hiding rock and treacherous shoal.
Chart and compass came from thee: Jesus Savior, Pilot me."
-Jesus, Savior Pilot Me, hymn #104, from Hymns of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
Sorry I don't have links so you can hear the melody to these two hymns but I am sure you could find them somewhere. (I'm still taking things easy).
I have thought about faith and how it can heal and strengthen us emotionally and spiritually. And it reminded me of a quote I read on a friend's adoption page, "Faith has a short shelf life". Very true! It has been good for me to be reminded that I need to work to keep my faith alive and burning bright.
