Bright Twilight Summers 2-16-22


Betty is sad because friends will all tease her.
Jimmy is mad at his new 4th grade teacher.

Joseph is crying.  His allowance is paltry.
Ruth screams loud because her corn is too salty.

Mary's self centered, says her penniless spouse.
And David is sick of repairing his house.

John still simply envies his neighbor's new car
as Suzie complains that the store is too far.

But Katie has joy despite her bone cancer.
How she loves Jesus who holds ev'ry answer.

God hears those complaining when things don't go right,
but He loves His children content in their fight.

Whatever the challenge, whatever the test,
remember that Jesus knows hardships the best.

So many see crosses on ev'ry small thing...
and they miss the best of what life has to bring.

And don't get wrapped up in the drama of others,
Live God's warm colors of bright twilight summers.
