In this life, we always try and find what we think we want and not what we truly need. I find that the world passes by too quickly for us to realize what is right in front of us the whole time. Everyone has different opinions about everything, the society has gotten to a point of not seeing the true beauty.
The day where people will slow down and see the little things that they've been missing. Hopefully it will be in time before it's to late and all is lost. Life will never be as it was, nor shall it ever be totally different from that time.
Everyday we see changes, some good, some not so good, but we fight through, always. Sorrow is a constant companion to happiness, the grief we feel when we lose someone, be it animal or human will be apart of the journey. But even in grief there is happiness, knowing that they are in heaven watching over us.
Many days I have had a prayer in my heart, wanting to get out. Not sure how to express what has been on my mind. Always wanting to hide my feelings, always trying to be strong. Never knowing when my part in the story will truly begin.
I reflect on everything that has happened in the past year and wish there was a way to get to the dreams I've been holding onto faster. Have them come into reality, where I can really see what is in store for me.
The future is full of the unknowns and all we can do is pray and hope that it will be the way that it is ment to be.
This is my prayer, from my heart
I pray that the new year will be full of memories and moments of love, laughter and happiness. I pray that everyone will be healthy and safe in the year to come. That the time will be spent spreading love to everyone, not missing a moment in time. Not missing a beat, for life is fleeting and if you blink, is a moment that will never return.
Like the song by Dean Brody Time
"You think you have time"
We think that there will always be a tomorrow, always be time to spend with, tell them that we love them. But in reality time is the one thing in life that is uncertain.
So I pray that we all take the time, to express to all the love that shouldn't be kept from the world.
I found one passage in the scripture that stood out to me. Its been a while since I even looked at the scriptures, but that doesn't mean that they aren't still apart of my life. Everything I learned when younger has stuck with me.
The scripture passage that stood out to me in this very moment was Psalm 61 verse 8
"Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us."
So I pray that all will take the time to show kindness, love, compassion to all. So even though I don't know you I will let you know that you are loved and that you all have a guardian that watches over you always.
