Spiritual Sunday

Blessings Come In Many Guises

When troubles come and things go wrong

And days are cheerless and nights are long,

We find it so easy to give in to despair

By magnifying the burdens we bear.

We add to our worries by refusing to try

To look for the rainbows in the overcast sky,

And the blessing God sent in a darkened disguise

Our trouble hearts fail to recognize,

Not knowing God sent it not to distress us

But to strength our faith and redeem us and bless us.

Helen Steiner Rice

How beautiful she puts it. If only even in our down times if we would just have a little quite faith and look up we could see the blessings much quicker.

My we always be looking up. Untill next time. Carol
