helpless

Tonight I feel helpless. I have three friends, who I love very much, going through some pretty terrible things in their lives.
I want to help and don't know how. I don't even think there is a way. There is nothing I can do to take away the pain. There is nothing I can do to make it better.

All I can do is be there for them if or when they need me.


Life is so unpredictable.

Keep them and all in need in your thoughts and prayers. Being their faithful friend, may be enough to get them through. "AN IRISH PRAYER: May God give you... For every storm, a rainbow; For every tear, a smile; For every care, a promise; And a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share; For every sigh, a sweet song, and an answer for each prayer."

You are a wonderful friend to us all. Remember that!

The most important thing is to pray for them, pray with them, and be there as a friend which you are already doing. Our powers are limited and then we let God do His job.

Being there....waiting with open arms, hearts full of love and prayers on our lips. that is the blessing of a friend. Know that you are doing everything you can. Leave the rest to our Heavenly Creator. Praying with you.
