The Hard Way


I have had a very trying week

I don’t understand what possible good all of this chaos could possibly serve

But I am trying really hard to remain strong in my faith

In the faith that I may not always see the good reasons behind the bad experiences

But I know beyond a shadow of a doubt

That You are orchestrating these events for a reason

Or maybe many reasons


I believe this with all my heart

But sometimes I find it hard to handle the assault of people being mean

Going out of their way to hurt me

And choosing to do the wrong things

So I pray that I will be enlightened

And I pray that I do not back slide into

Thinking that people treat me this way

Because that is how I deserve to be treated


I worked so hard to learn to love myself

And I know that pleases You tremendously

So I will continue on my path

With self love and respect

And I will be thankful for

All my lessons that I learn

Even the ones I learn the hard way

And perhaps the most important piece of this crazy puzzle

I will offer the people who tried to steal my joy


Because I think these people really need help

And therefore I will say a prayer for them


A prayer for healing

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. Just more polishing of a precious diamond…you…sweet Lorrie. You are on the right track to rise above it all just keep on keeping on. In the future you might very well see why what you have just experienced prepared you for something wonderful in your life. The time we live in now we just don’t understand all the things that come to us, but God knows best and one day I truly believe we will understand it all. You are just so precious and even in your hurt and pain you are blessing others. We always find beautiful roses among thorns. To me you are like a gorgeous rose with sparkling diamonds adorning the petals. Love, hugs and blessings!

    1. Oh dear, dear, Mags! You are like a light that shines through the darkest day! I am so touched by your beautiful words…you have brought a tear to my eyes. I so believe as you do, that everything we experience does prepare us for something down the road. And everything will make sense one day…Yes!! I live in this faith and though I walked away from it for a little while in my life it has always been the back bone of my existence! Thank you for your wonderful support…I am Blessitude!!! ❀ ❀
