"If all of life was sunshine
 and we never had any rain.
 If all of life was pleasure
 and we never felt any pain.

If our paths were always clear
 and no obstacles in the way.
If we never had to press
to make it through the day.

If we never had to shed tears
or sorrow pierce our hearts.
If we never experienced grief
or had a loved one to depart.

If sickness never came
and friends were never few.
If we had all the answers
and knew just what to do.

Then we wouldn't call on God
or go to Him in prayer.
And we wouldn't know His power
or ever feel His loving care."

~Lenora McWhorter

I am thankful for today's sunshine, after all the rain we had lately.  I am thankful you too, and the visits you make here.

Judy I just loved that poem. So true that without the rough roads we would likely not rely on God, or seek His face.....

Sometimes it takes sleepless nights to know God is near. (Laura Story's song .. do you know that one?)

Just a little something from Judy said...

No, I never heard Laura Story's song. I will find it and listen to it.
