                                             The whole world is seeking one who understands
                                             A million prayers rise upward from the sod
                                             If they would only listen as they speak
                                             Out of the silence they would hear you, Dear God

                                             The sad who seek to find you through their tears
                                             The broken hearts crying out in agony and pain
                                             You've always been there through toil and strife
                                              Faith of a mustard seed is but a tiny grain

                                             Though mountains are high and valleys low
                                             There is splendor above and light over head
                                             You've heard each cry and saw each tear
                                              And every prayer that's been spoken or said

                                             The human heart you placed within the breast
                                              Set there to run untouched from birth to death
                                              Is where faith should dwell and laughter ring
                                              Every day and night as long as there is breath

                                             All the promises you made should stand above
                                             A world of despair and cries should not dismay
                                             You are the rock from which we should stand
                                             Those who seek the highest shall never lose their way

A lil update,

I know all of you are wondering why I've been AWOL the last several weeks and what time I have been on I haven't been around to visit  My health issues are ongoing and I will be back soon as possible... It's not just the Thyroid issues but a lot more stuff has reared its ugly head.  Thank ya'll so much for your prayers. They mean the world to me and have kept me going. This is the hardest road I've ever had to travel but hopefully in time, I'll  be back good as new.
                      God Bless you all, ~Susie
