I got this from


written by Juanita DeHart


I wanted “Fields of Clover”

Or a cushy “Lily Pad”;

But God’s desire soared over

All the lofty dreams I had.

He knew that I would never

Be a minister of grace

If “Happiness Forever”,

Didn’t blow up in my face.

His reverie rose higher

Than my wishes dared to fly.

His hopes flared up life’s fire

For self-centered wings to die.

Instead of soft surroundings,

He provided tough terrain.

Still, blessings kept abounding

When high humps and bumps brought pain.

He gutted my “Rose Garden”,

Yet, He left those thorns which sting.

Heart’s sod is not down trodden,

Cause each prickle helps me cling.

I looked for lush and dainty

But I got Love’s cramped cocoon.

I’m glad He didn’t feed me

With a carnal “Silver Spoon”.

I’m sanctified through sadness;

Sorrow makes my spirit strong.

Grief gifts my lips with gladness

When “God’s Grace” becomes my song.

So “Happy Ever After”

Isn’t always “Easy Street”,

It’s knowing “Heaven’s Laughter”...

Following our Savior’s feet.

I'm not Christian but I'm humbled by the Peace Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
when there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand, to be loved as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Oh, my Father, Thou that dwellest I thy high holy place. When shall I regain thy presence and again behold they face. In thy holy habitation did my spirit once reside? In my first primeval childhood, was I nurtured near thy side?

For a wise and glorious purpose. Thou hast placed me here on earth. And withheld the recollection of my former friends and birth. Yet oft times a secret something whispers, 'Your a stranger here" and I felt that I had wandered from a more exhalted sphere.

When I leave this frail existence. when I lay this mortal by. Father, mother may I meet you in your royal courts on high? Then at length, when I've completed all you sent me forth to do. With your mutual approbation may I come and dwell with you?
