A Timely Reprint..

I know there is Evil.
It crouches in the dark,with a terrible patience.
'Till the scent of innocence fills it's nostrils,
and opportunity draws it from it's lair.

I know there are Demons.
They understand our weakness,
and tempt us from desire with feigned compassion.

I know there is pain,and loss,and injustice.
By virtue of having been up and down upon the Earth,
and walking to and fro' in it.

I know there are Angels.
That illuminate the darkness,
sustain our haggard spirits,
and retrieve us from icy waters.

There are always Angels..

Thank God I live my life by virtue...You reap what you sow. The Bible says we are not to worry when Christ is with us so I shall not.
I am faithful and I am sure that I should be expecting a miracle, and I will finally get what I deserve.
Love you Dad, and every little thing is gonna be allright.

Beautiful post Sling.

Your photography skills are awesome. The pictures of the early morning frost were just gorgeous. My favorite, the rose, of course.

From the gardeners cottage to yours, have a wonderful holiday season.

It's almost its own reward, to look for the love and the illumination in the hard stuff. And if you can find an Angel to help locate it more quickly, well then you've got a party of the good stuff, don't you?

ANY of us who have EVER been there (or anywhere near where your baby's at right now) knows what you say is true, so I'm pretty happy for everyone involved. It'll all work out.
