In follow-up to yesterday's post, here is a poem a good friend and fellow mom sent to me last night. God's promises are real and abundant...even in mom-dom angst.
God does not promise skies always blue,
Flower strewn pathways all our lives through...
God does not promise sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, Peace without pain.
But God does promise strength for the day,
Rest for the labor, light for the way...
Grace for the trials, help from above.
Unfailing sympathy. Undying love.
