Out of the Shadows

The sky was thin, no clouds only faded smokey blue
that just went on and on. There was nothing spiritual 
only a vague light wind. She had thrown the gifts away.
Spirituality, God and Faith were gone. She was alone 
with only nothingness. It was incredibly depressing. 
She had known spirtuality and god but had lost it along 
the way. There was nothing to replace it only a constant 
emptiness surrounding every dimention of her life. The 
pain was unbearable. Faith became the only way out 
of the darkness. 
Let us pray.
Faith reunited is the power to believe that life is 
special and holy and that God, in all the maddness, 
knows and loves us. Faith enables us to make sense out 
of our individual lives and at hard times gives a way
out no matter how difficult it becomes. Faith: is the
confidence of things hoped for, the assurance of things
of thing to come.
