Grateful


Thank you for weakness, where your strength can show through.
Thank you for struggles, that make me further depend on you.
Thank you for loss, that makes me appreciate what’s been given too.
Thank you for confusion, that helps me be thankful when I have a clue.
Thank you for difficulty, in deciding what to do.
Thank you for patience, to realize I don’t need to be blue.
Thank you for waiting, especially for a week or two.
Thank you for prayer, that gives me somewhere to turn to.
Thank you for faith, that shows me your mercy anew.
Thank you for cartoons, especially Winnie the Pooh.
Thank you for everything, especially your Son, so true.

Poem of the Day

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
