All Shall Be Well

Through all these rough times in our family, one has to find something to hang onto that gives comfort, strength and hope. Sometimes, the events and thoughts can be overwhelming. To be able to cope in some way, rather than give into the floundering feeling of helplessness; finding that "something" is not always easy.

I was reading a book for a bit of escape, a mystery by brilliant author Deborah Crombie, called "All Shall Be Well", a very good read as are all her books. The book's title comes from a quote, though the first line of the quote is not relevent for me, I love these words:

"It is sooth that sin is cause of all this pain,
But all shall be well and all shall be well and
all manner of things shall be well."
Juliana of Norwich, 15th century
from "All Shall be Well"
copyright @ 1994 by Deborah Darden Crombie

These words resonate with me, and have become my mantra over the last weeks. And now, with this Syrian crisis looming, I can't help but want to believe these words with all my heart.

I see that quotation all the time but never with the first line before.

I agree, All Will Be Well.
I have said those very words over and over again. And so it is.
Have faith and let not the darkness consume thee.

We live in troubling times with so much upheaval and pain, personally and universally. I have to believe All Shall Be Well also. I have to have hope that things will be okay here in my world and in the great big world as well. Hang on tight, Robin. Ann

Yes all shall be well but sometimes it takes more time than we want it too.

Take care my friend!
