to a friend

Dear friend,
You are a light which shines and your beauty radiates
through your smile.
God has blessed you with a heart for love,
for life and
joy follows you, wherever you go.

Do not let others tear down what God has built
in you
so carefully,
with a love, a passion, a gentle
threading of who you are.
Though all may stand against you,
He stands for you,
though hearts may break and words may
He will mend you with incorruptible stitches
and you,
you can stand firm,
you can rest in everlasting peace.
You have been faithful and He holds you
so tenderly,
so gently,
in His hands.

Be at peace.
You beautiful mama,
He has this one too.

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” - John 16:33
