    God knows what's best for us,
    So why should we complain...
    We always want the sunshine,
    But He knows there must be rain.

    We love the sound of laughter
    And the merriment of cheer;
    But our hearts would lose their tenderness If we never shed a tear.

    God tests us often
    With suffering and with sorrow;
    He tests us, not to punish us,
    But to help us meet "tomorrow."

    For growing trees are strengthened
    When they withstand the storm;
    And the sharp cut of the chisel
    Gives the marble grace and form.

    God never hurts us needlessly,
    And He never wastes our pain;
    For every loss He sends to us
    Is followed by rich gain.

    And when we count the blessings
    That God has so freely sent;
    We will find no cause for murmuring
    And no time to lament.

    For God loves us all,
    He never does things in vain;
    So He never sends us "pleasure"
    When the "soul's deep need is pain."

    So whenever we are troubled,
    And when everything goes wrong,
    It is just God working in us
    To make "our spirits strong."

    Something I thought worth sharing!
    Hugs to all
    Phoebe
