I get a weekly e-mail from SilentGrief.com and today’s entry really spoke to me and I wanted to share with you.

Are you afraid right now? Does your heart feel heavy and broken? Do you feel like you've lost your very best friend and you have no one who truly understands you? Do not spend anxious moments worrying and being afraid to face each new day. If you stop and get very quiet and still you will feel the very presence of God within you.
As you come to those dark places in your life, just reach out for the hand of the Shepherd, and He will take you under His wing and give you protection and help during the storm.
God promises to take care of your soul and to give you replenishment. He said He will take you to a cool, sheltered place where you can rest. And, no matter how steep the hill or the mountain, you never have to climb it alone.
Hope is believing in what you cannot see and trusting when all else tells you to stop. You have a Shepherd, and He will never, ever leave you. Rest in the arms of your Father and your soul will find nourishment.
You will gather strength from everyday things..a smile, a warm hello, thoughts from friends and loved ones. God is near, and hope is alive. You will make it! --C. Hinton
"Rely on hope because it will keep you steady and strong during the storms of life." --Clara Hinton
