Why things happen as they do

'Thoughts & prayers for MH370"

“Heartfelt thoughts & prayers for MH370”

Why things happen as they do
we do not always know,
And we cannot always fathom
why our spirits sink so low
We flounder in our dark distress;
we are wavering and unstable,
But when we’re most inadequate,
the Lord God’s always able –
For though we are incapable,
God’s powerful and great,
And there’s no darkness of the mind
God cannot penetrate…
And while he may not instantly
unravel all the strands
Of the tangled thoughts that trouble us,
He completely understands –
And in His time, if we have faith,
He will gradually restore
The brightness to our spirits
that we have been longing for…
So remember there’s no cloud too dark
For God’s light to penetrate
If we keep on believing
And have faith enough to wait.

Joke of the day – Speak up

images (2)

A little boy was kneeling beside his bed with his mother and grandmother and softly saying his prayers, “Dear God, please bless Mom and Dad and all the family and please give me a good night’s sleep.”

Suddenly he looked up and shouted, “And don’t forget to give me a bicycle for my birthday!!”

“There is no need to shout like that,” said his mother. “God isn’t deaf.”

“No,” said the little boy, “but Grandma is.”
