Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones by Barbara Williams

Come, take my hand, the road is long.
We must travel by stepping stones.
No, you're not alone. I've been there.
Don't fear the darkness. I'll be with you.
We must take one step at a time...
It's a long way to the other side
And there are many obstacles.

We have many stones to cross.
Some are bigger than others.
Shock, denial, and anger to start.
Then comes guilt, despair, and loneliness.
It's a hard road to travel, but it must be done.
It's the only way to reach the other side.
Come, slip your hand in mine...
 *****

We turn to God for help
when our foundations are shaking,
only to learn it is God who is shaking them.

 Charles C West

  1. This is so true Debbie. What does one do when it is God who is the author of our growing pains? We acquiesce and remember that joy does come in the morning and confess that "God's got it" no matter what. Blessings, Jan
