On Letting Go...





It’s so hard to let you stumble
Yet your stronghold is not I
Beneath life’s trial, tug and tumble
Is the Hand that holds the sky

It is not in our successes
That we learn how to be wise
But in our stumbles and our messes
We remember folly’s lies

Not the smooth road, but the mountains
Teaches us to endure strife
In life’s easy chairs of fancy
We grow unprepared for life

It’s so hard to let you struggle
But greater than a parent’s love
Is the power of the angels
Watching you from ports above
