Holding on to Hope

These words, a prayer, from St. Augustine's writing are full of understanding, comfort and encouragement when days seem long and dark and there is a sense of heaviness that isn't easily lifted.

" God of life, there are days when the burdens we carry chafe our shoulders and wear us down; when the road seems dreary and endless, the skies gray and threatening; when our lives have no music in them and our hearts are lonely, and our souls have lost their courage.  Flood the path with light, we beseech you; turn our eyes to where the skies are full of promise."  ~ Saint Augustine
