As the free copy of "The Lost Art of True Beauty" was not claimed, a new winner had to be randomly selected, and that winner is Shawna S.! Please write us via our contact page within the next 48 hours so that we can mail you the book!

Writer's note: The following poem is actually the lyrics to a song I wrote. One night in February I found out that my neighbor had suffered a serious stroke. I was very sad about it, and the first three sections below were inspired by that situation. I finished the song later, and these are the verses, bridges, and choruses:

When the way is rough
And the times are hard,
O Lord, be my trust,
Hear this breaking heart.

When I pray to You,
On that day hear my prayer,
In Your way show You're there.

For truly You can
Change the darkest storm
Into a rainbow,
By the power of Your Hand,
And give us hope.

When my soul is deaf
And my heart is blind,
Spirit, breathe Your breath
Through this life of mine.

When I'm in the dark,
Bring me back to Your fold,
For You died for my soul.

For truly You gave
Up Your life for me.
In the power of love
Set the captives free
Through death itself.

When I have no faith
And there seems no way,
O Lord, grant Your grace,
Please do not delay.

When I'm in that place,
Comfort me with Your Word,
Show that You have conquered.

For truly the grave
Could not hold You down.
And the life You gave
With a mighty sound
God raised again.

When the way is rough
And the times are hard,
O Lord, be my trust,
Hear this breaking heart.
