Time to Remember Bridge over troubled water Welcome [Content from Debbie] The Bridge There are times in lifewhen we are called to be a bridgeNot a great monument spanning a distanceand carrying loads of trafficbut a simple bridge to help one personfrom here to thereover some difficultysuch as pain, grief, fear, lonelinessa bridge which opens the wayfor the ongoing journey. When I become a bridge for anotherI bring upon myself a blessingfor I escape from the small prison of selfand exist for a wider worldbreaking out to be a larger beingwho can enter another’s painand rejoice in another’s triumph. I know of only onegreater blessing in this lifeand that is to allow someone elseto be a bridge for me. Joy Cowley Song Reflection [Video from Debbie] I Am Standing Upon The Seashore I am standing upon the seashore.A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean.is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at lengthshe hangs like a speck of white cloudjust where the sea and sky cometo mingle with each other. Then, someone at my side says; ‘There, she is gone!’‘Gone where?’Gone from my sight. That is all. She is just as large in mast and hulland spar as she was when she left my side and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port.Her diminished size is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someoneat my side says, ‘There, she is gone!’There are other eyes watching her coming,and other voices ready to take up the glad shout;‘Here she comes!’ And that is dying.
