ALLAH KNOWS BEST

ALLAH KNOWS BEST

Allah knows what’s best for us
so why should we complain.
We always want the sunshine
But Allah knows there must be a rain
we always want the laughter and the merriment of cheer
but our hearts will lose their tenderness if we never shed a tear
Allah tests us often with sufferings and with sorrows
he tests us not to punish us
but to help us meet tomorrow
for growing trees are strengthened
if they will stand the storm and sharp cut of the chisel gave the marble grace and form.
Allah tests us often and for every pin he gives us
provided we’re patient is followed by rich gain.
so whenever we are down and whenever we feel that everything is going wrong
it is just Allah’s way to make our spirit strong.

I pretended not to notice

I Pretended Not To Notice

I pretended not to notice the color
of his eyes; or the way he would
glance past me when I caught him
looking at me.

I pretended not to notice when his eyes
promised me the stars.

I pretended not to notice the joy
apparent in his eyes at the sight of
his child asleep next to me.

I pretended not to notice when his eyes
noticed someone else.

I pretended not to notice the
disappointment in the eyes looking
back at me from my mirror.

I pretended not to notice those eyes
filled with tears.

I pretended not to notice…..because my
soul could take no more.

letter never sent

You promised me everything
Yet
You never gave me anything
But
Pain
Suffering
And hurt feelings
You didn’t care for me this now I can see
You are so selfish all you cared about is staying
in America
You never spent time with me
You don’t know me
If you knew me you would have known I was unhappy
And in pain you would have heard me when I talked to
You, you would have listened and changed
You would have made it right but no selfish you
All you care about is cars, money and yourself
If you cared about me you would have spent time
With me you would have done partner yoga and
Counseling when I asked you to
Instead you left me alone slowly my hopes faded
My dreams died and I cried myself to sleep your famous
last lie was I still love her” you
Don’t love me or care for me if you did you wouldn’t
Have forced me to have anal sex you would have seen
That I was unhappy you would have tried to help but no
You just let me be unhappy
Silently I cry myself to sleep and silently my
Heart crumbles away
The sad thing
Is that I loved you
I still do
I do not feel like a human when around you
You are unhealthy you lead to stress in my
Life
You hurt me ignore me and demean me
I do not want my children to grow up seeing
That
So I have to let you go
I hope you realize that you
LOST!
You lost a faithful loving wife because you
Didn’t care about her
She tried to reach you
But you blocked her out with walls and by
Avoiding her
It doesn’t matter
You don’t care and you will never understand
Her
She was delicate as a leaf in the wind
Strong as a mountain
Brave as a knight
Gentle as a lamb
Sweet as honey
And now she is sad
As a clown crying tears of sorrow
Her tomorrow was shattered and you didn’t Care Allah Hafiz

Always Err on the Side of Compassion

good advice well written

Therese J. Borchard

err on compassionThe best piece of marital advice I’ve ever heard came from an ex-priest, a kind and gentle man that has been married to his bride for longer than I’ve been alive.

“Always err on the side of compassion,” he told me when I called him up all upset one afternoon after my husband and I got into a fight.

I don’t even remember what the fight was about.

Something stupid.

But I remembered his advice and I’ve been trying to apply it not only to my marriage but to my life, in general.

In fact, it has become my mantra.

Always err on the side of compassion.

It sounds so easy, but is so difficult to execute.

The more books and blogs I read about depression—from diet protocols to literature on mindfulness techniques, from guidebooks about essential brain supplements to cognitive behavioral tricks designed to jump start the more sophisticated…
