life the past week or so
has been a bit overwhelming
it’s amazing to me
how suddenly this can come on
in an instant is all seems a bit much
and there seems to be nothing
nothing at all that can fix it

and then time passes
and people come in and out
and drop encouraging words
and ideas that seem so simple
yet were so elusive
and all is right again

and it always
most of the time
happens like that

so why
when presented with those
overwhelming situations
is it so hard to let go
and trust

trust the process
trust those around you
trust that god
always has his hand
right there waiting to catch you
and pick you up
and guide you where you need to go

life would be so much simpler
if i could just remember
to trust

* * * * * * * * * *

and now enjoy some things
that have made the past week(s)
bearable (and even enjoyable at times)
it’s never
all bad

* * * * * * * * * *

  1. amen, girl.

    and isn’t it true?

    looking at your other posts reminds me of all that is good in your life…in the midsdt of it all.

    oh boy, kids hitting each other. supper time.

    see ya.

  2. It’s hard for me to trust because I see people out there for whom things never seem to work out. So then I wonder, are they making decisions that lead to their unhappy situation? But I must say, things always seem to work out okay for me in the end, and for that I am grateful. Maybe it’s a matter of having perspective…

    I’m glad things worked out okay for you, too!
