The battle is over for one
The body at rest, the soul now comforted in arms of love and light for all of eternity.

We march on, an army of friends, family, and human beings with the desire to live, to fight, to see a new day.

While the fight is over for one and the many who have gone before him, the battle continues for many.

The sad truth is, there will be more. More children, mothers and fathers, friends and strangers, who will be plagued with suffering, pain, and the deep will to fight on!

Without love and support, Without kindness, compassion or camaraderie we will all lose.

Let’s keep this fight alive, this battle this war against……

Continue the legacy of strength, push forward, reach out and find your soul, your heart, your purpose.

The greatest love there is, is to give one’s life for another.

Don’t misunderstand this for laying down your life, but for dedicating your life to serving others. To making a difference in their lives, the lives of so many.

I challenge you, my readers ,friends, family, neighbors and strangers to reach out. There is no better time than now to find a soul, a human being in need of YOUR strength, of YOUR love, of YOUR support. To hold your hand and know, that you really do care.

Prayer of Saint Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury,pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen

Holding hearts and hands.


About markella

I am a freelance writer with a creative flare for life. I see inspiration in all that I encounter and have a thirst for knowledge, life, running, cooking, being outdoors, my incredible family and of course taking pen to paper or fingers to keyboard. I spend much of my time as a student in life, learning from kids and all the wonder that surrounds us. I believe in always asking questions, even when nobody else will. l love the bountiful Okanagan Valley, where I call home and anticipate each season, as creativity and inspiration take their form all over the place here. I love the clinche saying, "You've made your bed, now lie in it." I believe we create our paths and determine our futures. Maya Angelou puts it simple and exact, " Be present in all things and thankful for all things."
