Tunnel of Life.

Throughout my life there have been hills,

Each one climbed,

Some easily,

Others harder,

Until I came to the one,

The one that could not be climbed.

I looked at it,

I worried,

I decided to dig,

To dig through the hill,

Make a tunnel beneath.

It was hard,

So hard I nearly gave up,

But came that day,

That day when I dug through.

I was so tired

But so relieved.

As I now look back,

Look back at the tunnel,

I am now free,

Free to move on,

To move on with freedom,

Into my new found life.

      Thanks for sharing UNCLE ANDY ~ Loved the metaphor ! Reminded me of the CHOURUS !

      Got any rivers you think are uncrossable
      Got any Mountaines you cant tunnel through
      God specialises in things thought impossible

      We all have Mountains iin our Lives but ~ so far ~ Angela & I have found that by dilligence and Prayer most problems can be eased or even solved. You have been a great example to us in your relationship with your Lovely Wife JOYCE. Friends of ours have shared the initial Pain when one in a Marriage has to leave the Family Home and go into care. You have shared a similar situation with us. Because you are happy that JOYCE is in Loving hands ~ and you are able to visit her regularly ~ your memories are intact & precious and you are FREE to start a NEW phase of your life ~ knowing that you have always done your very best for JOYCE in every circumstance ! You & Joyce are on our Prayer list every day ~ it is a pleasure to know you and we pray ~ that both your futures will be blest ~ AMEN !

      Blessings & Peace to YOU & YOUR Lovely JOYCE
      Love in the Spirit ANGELA & BRIAN ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก
