Ups and Downs in Life


These are a few verses that I have written that have a similar theme of the opposites in life. I post these sometimes on my Inspirational Poetry Facebook page and Twitter. Please click on these links if you'd like to read more like these.


Life is a mixture of good things and bad,
pain and pleasure, being happy or sad.
Remember through all things the good Lord above
will guide and protect you, filled with great love.


Some days have sunshine and others have rain,
some days bring happiness, others bring pain,
some days bring sorrow like storm clouds above,
but all days are filled with God's grace and great love.


Sometimes there's peace, at others there's strife,
laughter and tears are each part of life.
At times things go right but at times may go wrong,
But love makes things better, fills your heart with a song.

Gorgeous, Connie... We all have our 'ups and downs' in life... The good/bad, sunshine/rain, sad/happy times are around all of the time... I love the old saying:"When life gives us lemons, make lemonade".... It's all about our attitude and the choices we make.

Hugs,
Betsy
Please take out that horrible Word Verification. Thanks so much.

Connie, so true. If not for the bad, we wouldn't appreciate the good as much.

Without the challenges, we wouldn't know the joy of trusting God through them. Beautiful words, just the inspiration I needed. Thank you, Connie.

"Thus saith Jehovah, Because the Syrians have said,Jehovah is a god of the mountains and not of the valleys, I will give this great multitude into thy hand, and ye shall know that I am Jehovah", 1 Kings 20: 28.
