Lend Me Your Hope (author unknown)...



Lend me your hope for a while,
I seem to have mislaid mine.
Lost and hopeless feelings accompany me daily,
pain and confusion are my companions.
I know not where to turn.

Looking ahead to future times
does not bring forth images of renewed hope.

I see troubled times,
pain-filled days,
and more tragedy.
Lend me your hope for a while,
I seem to have mislaid mine.

Hold my hand and hug me;
listen to all my ramblings,
recovery seems so far distant.
The road to healing
seems like a long and lonely one.
Lend me your hope for a while,
I seem to have mislaid mine.

Stand by me,
offer me your presence,
your heart and your love.
Acknowledge my pain,
it is so real and ever present.
I am overwhelmed
with sad and conflicting thoughts.
Lend me your hope for a while.
A time will come when I will heal,
and I will share my renewal,
hope and love with others.

Antique Postcards from Nik & Megan







These are some lovely antique postcards that my dear friends Nik and Megan have given or mailed to me over the years.  

I love how Nik took the already-mailed postcard of Pike's Peak and lettered and addressed the front of it and then sent it to me!  

They are both very lovely, creative and sweet people who I like a lot.


Thanks, Nik and Megan!
