ABC'S

Although things are not perfect
Because of trial or pain.
Continue in Thanksgiving,
Do not begin to blame.
Even when times are hard,
Fierce winds are bound to blow,
God is forever able.
Hold on to what you know.
Imagine life without His love,
Joy would cease to be.
Keep thanking Him for all things,
Love imparts to thee.
Move out of "Camp complaining,"
No weapon that is known
On earth can yield the power
Praise can do alone,
Quit looking at the future,
Redeem the time at hand.
Start every day with worship
To thank is a command,
Until we see Him coming,
Victorious in the sky,
We'll run the race with gratitude.
Yes, there will be good times and yes some bad,but...
Zion waits in glory....where none are ever sad!!

  2. Hi Linda,

    I have missed my visits with you! Beautiful photos especially the one of you!!! I was so blessed in the poetry you shared as well. Loved the "move out of camp complaining"! I learned that long ago. I often say, turn our whining to worship.

    I pray that all is well with you sis!

    Much love!
