I was hurting
And you comforted me.
I was paralyzed with fear
And you said you were, too.
I was angry and raging,
And you knew I was justified.
I was confused
And you showed me reason.
I was consumed by shame
And you didn't judge me.
I was a prisoner in my mind
And you visited me there.
I was tired and fallen,
And you carried my burden.
All these things and many more
You, Brothers, have done for me.

(concept based on Matthew 25:35-41)

Feel free to add your own "I was..." 's to this. Would be interested in seeing others.

I was alone,
you showed me that I wasn't.
I was the only one,
you introduced me to my brothers.
I was unloveable,
you loved and cared for me.
I was worthless,
you gave me worth.
I was outside,
you welcomed me inside.
I was hated,
you accepted me.

If there is a way through this,
it is with this band of brothers.

Thanks, Eddie,


"No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence."

God works in mysterious ways, somedays we think he leaves us, but faith to my mind is the only way I ever got thru this shit.

There is so much warmth in life beyond the past, if we let it be, it's not so hard when we can see it

take care
