God's Will

For he knows of his joy
And his glory
And still longs to belong

waiting for Christmas
the child
praying for the healing
of a loved one

the desolation of the mother
for the lost little one

the conviction and desparation
of a father who has lost his only son

Three crosses on a hill
three was a conviction (completion)
of God's will

    Finding one's place in the will of God is most important; He guides us by His will. (Report) Reply

    What constitutes the strength of a Man as a crown of Creation:
    Resolution, Conviction, will-power, resignation and submission to Divine-Will...
    there can never be the report of All-Good every time, in all phases of life...whatever the time is...at least God IS there.........enough consolation and moral support..... (Report) Reply
