A new day dawns

A new day dawns, yet my darkness lingers
Oh dear father my spirit weakens
To face this day do I dare awake
For the fear of failure makes my heart break

Hear my cry oh god above
For you are my right my rock my love
Let not the accuser my soul control
Father in heaven I am yours alone

Burn me break me consume me more
Till I am spotless, as white as snow
Teach me guide me and let me know
Your love is everlasting, forevermore

Anoint my lips that I may sing your praise
Move my heart and fill it with your grace
Hold me near and teach me to dance
That all the world may know we always have another chance

A picture of love

21st July 2015 is one of those days that will always be a part of my heart. A day I witnessed a picture unlike any other.

Me and my coworkers decided to visit Shishubhavan, an orphanage run by the Missionaries of Charity. What I experienced was something quiet different.

The sight of the nuns and volunteers from Spain feeding the differently abled children paralysed me. What I saw before me was a beautiful picture of love, patience and joy among the nuns and volunteers n even the children. I stood back.. simply watching, taking in quietly all that I could from what I saw.

While I just stood there. I saw my dear friend add to the picture her loving presence. She waltzed around the room connecting with the children and the volunteers with a radiant glow on her face.

Here I was, in awe, getting a glimpse of how the lord was working.  There was only 1 language that existed.... the language of love.

Before this picture I was a spectator and I pray that soon I would be a part of the picture itself, for another little girl to see and love.
