My first thought when I saw this photo - was the Twila Paris Song called "Hold On" (embedded below)

I have several friends and acquaintances going thru some extremely hard times right now. A young couple with 3 children lost their home, 2 dogs and all their possessions in a tragic house fire. A long time friend, just a couple of years older than me, diagnosed with the kind of cancer that took my mom. A colleague's grand mom hit by a car and killed while crossing the street in front of her home. Several folks have lost spouses and children in the last month.

When nothing is as we understand or would like it to be - we cling to the one who is constant, steady and faithful - L O V E

God is Love. Love will never pass away. God will always be the constant.

If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.
But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

The video has the words in a foreign language - but her voice is so clear you can understand the words perfectly.

Hold On my friends ... hold on ...

Beautiful, Valerie... Life can be tough for all of us at times... And just think of those who may be suffering --whom we don't know about...

Tie a big knot in that rope and HANG ON.
