Hold Fast, The Sun Will Shine

Turn off those worries that well within
No more than millstone, hope grown thin.
Temporary, that gray horizon
For storm tossed days will have an end.

Through darkest night a candle burns
When inner thoughts are outward turned,
When burdens weighed would overwhelm,
Remember The Captain is at the helm.

No matter what, no need to fret,
Tranquility is coming yet.
Smiling eyes and a glad heart that sings
Are wind beneath the peace dove’s wings .

Fleet footed time works patiently
“The best of all is yet to be”.*

  1. Whether man made or of nature, this world sometimes seems an overwhelmingly troubled place; yet still faith survives and the goodness within our species shines through the dark.

    Let us trust that indeed the best is yet to be; which I believe to be true as I read these uplifting lines.

  2. Douglas,

    Thank you! I am in an area that is little touched by time or storm (in this particular season).
    The birds are singing and the sun is shining. My heart aches for those who are standing in
    water looking at a pile of rubble that was their home.

    In the same vein, I think of those who are reliving that awful 9/11 in 2001 when they lost their
    loved ones.

    I realize as I look and listen that out of grief comes growth. I truly believe that the best is yet to be…
    for all of us!

    What a beautiful message of hope and resolve to keep the faith even during the storm. Your words are not only lyrical but spiritually inspiring and comforting as well. Thank you so much for sharing this, it is much needed at a time when things seem rather bleak and chaotic.

    Thank you!

    • Wendy,

      Thank you so very much. They say the vibes one projects affect the ‘atmosphere’ of the universe, so I think it is important to look for that ray of sun even in the midst of storm. It is hard to see people suffer and to be so impotent to really help.

      Thanks again for your support and insight.

      Sarah
