You look at me with weary saddened eyes,
What is this surprise?
What is this to mean?
Why would this happen now?
I don’t understand why God would allow?
I look back at you with the same weary saddened eyes.
And the same questions arise.
I can’t tell you what it means,
Nor can I tell why now
Or if God actually allowed.
I can give you a list of suppositions,
That would run for pages unbroken.
Some of them right some of them wrong.
Well this isn’t quite fair!
Why would it happen to this pair!
The only answer that I can give that is sure,
comes from Gods Holy word.
Taken a bit out of context but it still rings true.
“…for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good,
and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”
No one is exempt from the trials of life,
Nor is anyone exempt from blessings.
So as my eyes clear,
and my heart again grows strong.
I choose to see blessing in the wreckage .
To see the glimmers of hope that lay on the horizon
And thank God for yet another day.
