Clings, good word for this, clings, like a child clings to her father rescuing her from the flood or the fire.
You know what builds my confidence in God? The Psalms. I find that if I read some each and every day, that little by little the Words seep into the deepest recesses of my soul. Then when I feel anxious or troubled, the Words enter my mind and my heart and I have confidence in our ever-present Lord.
Thank you for your kind and inspiring words, Robert and Hannah. As you may have noticed, I've been away for a while, but I have returned as of this morning. May God bless you and Our Lady protect you and your dear ones.
