To Pray

  • laugh
  • whistle
  • dance on happy feet
  • sing
  • shout
  • and jump – higher
  • than ever before
  • But it is also to
  • whisper
  • wonder
  • stumble in dark places
  • cry
  • scream
  • or just hold a worried head
  • in tired hands and wait
  • Prayer is our tired reaching out to the One
  • who holds us closer and loves us more than we would dare imagine.

    God Hath not Promised

  • God hath not promised skies always blue,
  • flower strewn pathways all our lives through;
  • God hath not promised sun without rain,
  • joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
  • But God hath promised strength for the day.
  • Rest for the labor, light for the way,
  • grace for the trials, help from above,
  • Unfailing sympathy,
  • Undying Love . . .
