Lessons of Life



Although you enjoy sunshine,
Know there also must be rain,
And though you long for pleasure,
At times in life there’s pain.
The chaos of the world
May lead you to despair,
To wonder why bad things occur
And feel that life’s not fair.

You long to find more joy,
To never suffer sorrow,
But though today the clouds may come
There’s hope for a brighter tomorrow.
The lessons of each day,
If they are to be learned,
Can lead you to the joy and peace
For which your heart has yearned.

When you in faith seek God,
Who has all things in control,
Healing and strength can flow to you,
Shining beauty into your soul.

Fabulous poem, Connie.... Love your photo also showing the sunbeams. We recently took a cruise on a schooner --and saw some sunbeams similar to that.

Hugs,
Betsy
