BLESSINGS IN DISGUISE
I walked a mile with laughter
She chatted all the way
But I remember very little
Of all she had to say .
I walked a mile with sorrow
Never a word said she
But O the things I learnt of her
When sorrow walked with me .
How strange it seems -
In this paradox of loss and gain -
That we learn our greatest lessons
From our deepest pain .
That through the very things we suffer -
Can come blessings in disguise
And we can learn to love our weaknesses -
When seen through heaven's eyes .
The greatest men and women -
Who have walked this fallen earth
Are those who give their life blood -
And deny themselves .
Or those who give their time and energy -
To relieve the sick and poor
And point people to the SAVIOUR
And to open heaven's door .
So next time the sky seems leaden -
And the rain begins to pour
Remember all the blessings
That will follow - that's for sure.
Don't dwell upon the negatives -
But lift your eyes instead
And by faith - your'll see the harvest
And the millions who'll be fed .
BE ENCOURAGED AND REMEMBER
THAT THE SUN IS ALWAYS SHINING ABOVE
THE DARK CLOUDS.
GOD BLESS YOU AMAZINGLY ...TODAY.
with love from S.C.Mitchell
