My friend’s mom comes out of her accident practically unscathed!!
My sister-in-law has suffered for 20 years since the accident where she was broad-sided by an impaired driver and her survival was called a miracle, and why is it harder for me to say ‘thank-you God’ now through 'why-why-why' tears of misunderstanding?
Why is it so hard to accept answers so different from our desires?
Because we can’t see the finished picture!
Karen’s latest trial, Bell’s Palsy.
She suffers long and not by choice
But does not raise an angry voice
To question God, wail or lament
While we behold love’s testament
She suffers, those around her see
The beauty of humility
Fairest of them all, this saint
Wears suff'ring's crown without complaint
She suffers, through her hurt God spills
His strength where weakness yields its will
While we implore with thought and prayer
'The Lord to help her cross to bear'

As I watch her all of my life-complaints ever, seem pathetic...
