Lonesome fear has plagued my life.
My days of youth, spent in strife.
My faith since abandoned, with prayers unheard,
For God to allow such pain it’s absurd:
“Horror of horrors, a life spent alone,”
“That future assured, my past has shown.”
“O take me heaven, I’d much rather sleep.”
“O holy razor, my blessed release.”
“Help me! Rid me this cursed isolation,”
“Wrought by weary nerves, my eternal damnation.”
“Bleed me this pain, I offer my hand.”
“Rescue me Mother, help me understand.”

Change happens in our lives constantly, they can be little things like the bus timetable shifting meaning you have to go to work at a new time or much bigger like leaving home and starting university.
A few weeks ago the world said good bye to Carrie Fisher, better known to many as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films.
True or not, many of you might be familiar with Murphy’s Law; an age old adage stating that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
This week I had the privilege of attending the Canadian Mental Health Association’s #b4stage4 conference in Victoria BC.
It can seem like our lives are filled with busyness, noise, distractions, and often meaningless activities.
What if we could filter out all that noise, and focus on the meaningful?
The impact of people's words are so incredibly underestimated; whether those words are thoughtful and kind, or insensitive and hurtful.
The train wreck is over and it really doesn't matter
Just sift through the wreckage for what didn't shatter
You will find baggage some good and some bad
Hang on the the good reflect on the sad
Come up with the lessons they're there for a reason
Use them again in a different season
Carry it through until you can use it again
That lesson of life you learned in the end
For always there will be an end and beginning
