There is a part of my life that is now over.
There is a part of my life that is now gone
and the time has come for turning a new page
for leaving behind what went wrong.

If I think of each day as a blessing;
a renewal of my energy:
then I shall move forward in confidence,
realising what my life can be.

Now, that part of my life is over
I give thanks for it has helped me to see,
how acceptance of hurt, then forgiveness;
transformed my own image of me.


God is our peace
He opens the way
for us to breathe deeply;
of His calmness each day.

When we grow weary
of travelling Life's road;
let us return to His resting place
our Spirit's abode.

God is our peace
hold that thought in mind;
it has no more a secret
but a joy, to be defined.

God is our peace
in the eye of the storm.
His closeness, our comfort
until the breaking of Dawn.

God is our peace-
in prayer we appeal
for an end to our suffering;
which He alone can heal!


Recall a time alone,
when you called out a name;
but there was no encouragement
and nobody came.

Simply light a candle
feel the comfort in its glow.
Soon you will sense a Presence
and your loneliness will go.

Refresh yourself each day
within the candle's ray.
Use the Light it sheds on you
to chase darkness away.

Give yourself a moment,
in a place where you are apart.
Surrender in the solitude
the burdens of your heart.

Peacefulness will follow,
bringing harmony to heal.
Light a candle as a symbol
of a Presence which is real

Poems of Encouragement
by Roslyn (Ros) Mansell

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don't;
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost a cinch you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you've lost;
For out in the world you'll find
Success begins with a person's will;
It's all in the state of mind.

Life's battles don't always seem to go
To the strongest or fastest man,
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.

You will always have my love.
There is nothing that means more to me,
Than the joys in life you've helped me see
With your openess and honesty
You will always have my love.

Every dream you have is my dream too,
For I want what's truly best for you,
And I'll cherish you my whole life through
You will always have my love.

You don't need to hide your doubts or fears,
For I want to share your smiles and tears
And to be there for you through the years
You will always have my love.

I don't think I'll ever find a way
To describe just what I feel each day,
I can only hold you close and say
You will always have my love.
