Blessings in Everything

For Holly

Blessings come in many guises

That He alone in love devises,

And sickness which we dread so much

Can bring a very "healing touch"--

For often on the "wings of pain"

The peace we sought before in vain
Will come to us with "sweet surprise"

For He is merciful and wise--

And through long hours of tribulation

He gives us time for meditation,

And no sickness can be counted loss

That teaches us to "bear our cross."

~~From the collected poems of Helen Steiner Rice~~

What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!
