One of my favourites

My heart is sore pained within me:
and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.

Fear and trembling have seized me:
and darkness has overwhelmed me.

And I said: O that I had wings like a dove!
For then I would fly away and be at rest.

Lo, would I flee far away,
and live in the wilderness.

I would wait for him who will save me
From my cowerdice and from the storm.

PSALM 55

Big {{HUGS}} this Psalm is one that I seemed to remember when life was so difficult, wondering when peace would finally come to me after the tears, and the hurt that seemed to be lurking in every corner. The wanting to fly, just to be able to breath again.

You are not alone my dear, C has been diagnosed with bi-polar, it's not easy for any one to go through what the both of you have to live with. C is only 7, I've been praying that he will have peace, my answered prayer is he has found a school that is working with him, on his speach, eye and hand corndination, and his verbal skills too. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

SR - I don't usually look to the Bible for comfort or inspiration. But this Psalm has always spoken to something inside me and it's one that I always remember when life gets tough.
I've sent you an email re C.
