Be my frowning friend

"Come, then, affliction, if my Father wills, and be my frowning friend.
A friend that frowns is better than a smiling enemy."

That divine spark alive

"Love is the best and noblest thing in the human heart,
especially when it is tested by life as gold is tested by fire.
Happy is he who has loved much, and although he may have wavered and doubted,
he has kept that divine spark alive
and returned to what was in the beginning and ever shall be."
~Vincent van Gogh

Another place where you're a stranger

"And ain't it funny what people say 
And ain't it funny what people write 
And ain't it funny how it hits you so hard 
In the middle of the night 

And if your home is just another place where you're a stranger 
And far away is just somewhere you've never been 
I hope that you'll remember, I was your friend 
I hope you'll have the strength to just remember 
I'm still your friend."

~Rich Mullins

A silent weary tear

"Oh give me mercy for my dreams
'Cause every confrontation seems to tell me
What it really means
To be this lonely sailor
And when the sky begins to clear
The sun it melts away my fear
And I shed a silent weary tear
For those who mean to love me"
~Dougie MacLean

even when there is pain."

To hold me

"He has chosen not to heal me, but to hold me.
The more intense the pain, the closer His embrace."
