    As we all watch countless lives being shattered in the wake of the Katrina devastation, please join me in offering prayers of love and light to strengthen and give courage to those souls left behind as they struggle to find a way to rebuild their lives.

    Sometimes life seems hard to bear
    Full of sorrow, trouble and woe
    It's then I have to remember
    That it's in the valleys I grow.

    If I always stayed on the mountain top
    And never experienced pain
    I would never appreciate God's love
    and would be living in vain.

    I have so much to learn
    And my growth is slow
    Sometimes I need the mountain tops
    But it's in the valleys I grow.

    I do not always understand
    Why things happen as they do
    But I am very sure of one thing
    My Lord will see me through.

    My little valleys are nothing
    When I picture Christ upon the cross
    He went through the valley of death
    His victory was Satan's loss.

    Forgive me Lord, for complaining
    When I'm feeling so very low.
    Just give me a gentle reminder
    That it's in the valleys I grow.

    Continue to strengthen me
    Lord, And use my life each day
    To share your love with others
    And help them find the way.

    Thank you for the valleys, Lord
    For this one thing I know
    The mountain tops are glorious
    But it's in the valleys I grow

    Thanks Dun. Here's another one I came across and want to share:

    Let us be still an instant
    and forget all things we ever learned
    all thoughts we've ever had
    and every preconception
    of what things mean and what their purpose is.
    Let us remember not our own ideas
    of what the world is
    for we do not know.
    Let every image held of everyone
    be loosened from our minds
    and swept away.
    Be innocent of judgment
    unaware of any thoughts of evil
    or of good that ever crossed
    your mind of anyone.
    ....from a Course in Miracles

    When we let go of what we believe to be the truth, and what we might consider the right way, we open up to seeing the world in God's way.
    Do nothing. Just go to God.
