faith-hope-love-1-shevon-johnsonprayinghands1

good morning dear friends. my thoughts and prayers have been unending for the past few days and i know yours are too. i search for meaning but there is none. i’m not a religious person but find tremendous help in the power of prayer. i hope you find some comfort too.

“When every hope is gone, when helpers fail and comforts flee, I find that help arrives somehow, from I know not where. Supplication, worship, prayer are no superstition; they are acts more real than the acts of eating, drinking, sitting or walking. It is no exaggeration to say that they alone are real, all else is unreal.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

    I was touched by your thoughts. The photo speaks volumes. If only we would all become religious and firmly footed there life would have so much more meaning. With out faith all the others things we do are for the moment and gone in a flash. God does not do bad things to people–people do. Nature causes many disasters, not God. If only Adam & Eve had not ruined the Garden of Eden we would not have to endure such things. I am glad I have my faith. Thanks for sharing your thoughts today.
