“Speak to me in the light of the dawn;
mercy comes with the morning.
I will sigh and with all creation groan
as I wait for hope to come for me.”
“Carry me, Lord, carry me.
Take my heart into your hands,
for i don’t have the strength to stand
on my own.
And i know you won’t leave me here alone.
–a daily prayer =)
” O my child, i’ve heard you calling.
i’m a light in your darkness.
you can run to me.
And in the midst of your falling
i’ve been right here beside you,
just waiting for you to let go
and put your trust in me.
you’re of infinite value to me!
it’s for you that i laid down my life
so you could be free.
be free in me, be free in me,
let go, my child, and be free.”
–more from light in the darkness… =)
“the sun’s still shining” -sophie scholl said
on the way to her execution in 1943 in Germany
She also said “every life is precious” while talking
to her interrogator about why the nazis were wrong.
–how i love her heart!
“There’s a light in the depths
Of your darkness
There’s a calm at the eye
Of every storm.
There’s a light in the depths
Of your darkness.
Let it shine
Oh, let it shine!”
–Dan Fogelberg –sure do miss him in our world!
“You can have my heart
If you don’t mind broken things
You can have my life if you don’t mind these tears
Well I heard that you make old things new
So I give these pieces all to you
If you want it you can have my heart”
“From the need to be understood
From the need to be accepted
From the fear of being lonely
Deliver me O God.”
