Of Footholds and Foundation

This poem was inspired by thinking of/praying for 
many family, friends, neighbors and acquaintances 
suffering seriously difficult times; injury, sickness, pain, loss of loved ones etc..

When faith needs to find fresh footholds
And hope needs a big hug or three
As love learns how to suffer long
And cheer learns a meek melody

…and when the heaviness of heart
Must bear the heaviness of life
And groan beneath a weight enlarged
By pain and parting’s sorrow-strife

When plan and routine run awry
And Unknown looms like blackest night
In mortal weakness God is strong
In Unknown’s darkness He is Light
