Under the sadness, faith grows.
"Faith Grows" by LoAnn Beery
Under the layers of sodden sadness that just lie there, dank, dark, and still...there is planted a seed. It has a name...I have discovered what it is and why it is.
Life sometimes disguises the choices we have, leaving us to be afraid to move and to be afraid of choosing.
Under layers of unhappiness, the seed has been growing.Under the pain and unhappiness of
life- perhaps a reason to try again...lives and grows stronger.
Do I believe in myself? Do I believe in God who has promised to make all things new again?
Can I take a chance and believe enough to make choices again and reach a decision for life;
for all it can be?
The seed continues to grow. It has a name. Faith.

In this year of troubles and sorrows, I still felt my faith growing within.
