My Poem: Flickers of Hope

Sometimes life seemed so unfair. Questions! So many questions we may asked at our times of distress! Why do I have to have diabetes? Why do my friends have to fight the Big C? Why has my brother-in-law been disabled by Parkinson's? Why can't my sister be free to savor her golden years?

In faith I know God has His reasons. In faith, He has given His people hope too. In times of troubles, I should not be looking for the "why's" but to look for life through His gift of hope ... to live.  Hope never abandons anyone but perhaps I have.  Embracing God's gift of hope can help us overcome our fears to emerge stronger, more compassionate and loving ourselves more.  And may we become the motivation for people around us.

This poem is dedicated to a very special friend.
