Deepness

I woke to find a little of the world had changed......

I found out that a little colour had disappeared from this life.......
She was a student in my class at age 7.....

She was in our youth group 

We mentored her.....talked with her, encouraged her, prayed for her.....
even cried for her........

She became a mum...

bought her little ones full circle to the playgroup I run.......

I have her little ones under my wings as part of my pastoral role.......

Her family knew....
her friends knew.....
we all knew......

She carried the weight of the world
She saw life with heavy eyes

She tried .....

until she could do it no longer......


The sadness I feel is deep down

although my tears just won't stop falling today...

 joining those tears from all that loved her , cared for her, tried to help her.


How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered'
  Psalm 139 v 17
