When I get lost, burdened, and overwhelmed,
I try to remember-
And them, too.
And suddenly,
there is so much love.
You made them strong.
You made them brave.
You made them bold.
You made them constant.
You gave them hope.
You gave them life.
You gave them to me,
that I may learn,
and grow,
and strive,
and work,
and love,
like them.
Like You.
O thank God for them.
My saints.
And thank You for You.
