In times of grieving, prayers are particularly comforting... Does anyone know a special prayer which they have found helpful?
Giuliana aka Princess Little Rock
Love, make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred... let me sow love
Where there is injury... pardon.
Where there is doubt... faith.
Where there is despair... hope.
Where there is darkness... light.
Where there is sadness... joy.
Oh Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled... as to console,
To be understood... as to understand,
To be loved... as to love,
It is in giving... that we receive,
It is in pardoning... that we are pardoned,
It is in DYING... that we are born to eternal life.

BEING APART FROM YOU ISN'T EASY Being apart from you isn't easy... I find myself missing you so often, In so many ways... But even though we can't be together right now, Gentle thoughts of you fill my days, And dreams of you fill my nights... No matter what I'm doing, I know it would be so much nicer If I could be sharing it with you. I keep imagining things you'd say If you were with me now... Or the way you would laugh If something funny happened, And the next thing I know, I'm daydreaming about all the things We'll do when we're together again. Although the miles Come between us now, I still feel so close to you... And I just keep hoping The days will fly by, Because I want you beside me To talk to, To hold, To love.
And if I go while you are still here…
Know that I still live on
Vibrating to a different measure
Behind a thin veil you cannot see through
You will not see me, so you must have faith
I wait the time when we can soar together again
Both aware of each other
Until then live your life to the fullest.
And when you need me,
just whisper my name in your heart.
…………….I will be there
I'll see your face in every cloud that floats through my sky
And when the world is too much and it gets me down on my knees to pray
I'll hear your voice and you won't seem so far away.
Or any other words that come directly from the heart...
