This is for Victoria, but anyone who can use these words to ease their pains feel free to share.
When I was a child we had a song in Bible School and Sunday School that went like this:
Deep and Wide, deep and wide, there’s a fountain flowing deep and wide…
The fountain above is not so deep and not so wide, but it is cool and clear (at least when we filled it) and now that the lights are in it, we see wonderful colors coming from it in the evening. One of the neighbors mentioned to Paulina at the pool how she loves looking at it from her bedroom window when she wakes during the night.
My point of choosing that song is because God’s love is deep and wide. God’s love flows to us just like a great fountain. It is deep, wide, cool and clear and the waters are healing.
Psalm 121:1-2 (My absolutely favorite verses in the Bible) say the following:
1. I lift up my eyes to the hills–from where does my help come?
2. My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.
Two other quotations that I found that you should hear are:
Eleanor Roosevelt said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
Mark Twain wrote, ” Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too, can become great.”
May the love of God that passes all understanding be with you now and evermore. Amen!
