The Way Time Is...

A year ago today hubby had a surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his bladder. 
Thankfully his check-ups to this point show no return of it and we are glad,
but as I recall thinking how I'll be SO relieved when this is behind us (the anxiety etc.and we are!) 
...here we are, a year later where Hope and Trouble have changed their outfits but never leave!
It seems we always have fresh cares to 'cast upon the Lord'!
(1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.)
 “Cast your burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you
He shall never permit the righteous to be moved” 
(Psalm 55:22)




Be careful; while we wait
For morrow’s bud to bloom
The Way Time Is scatters today
Like petals on a tomb

Be prayerful; while we wait
For gates to ope or close
The Way Time Is never returns
The petal to the rose

Be thankful; while we wait
For days to come or go
For soon The Way Time Is will be
The petal on the snow
