Greetings! What a glorious few days we have had, and most are probably wondering when the next big surprise of when another big blast will come sneaking in, to bring out the coats and turn up the heat! Well, let me tell you a little secret on why I didn't have a column in last Sunday.
Greetings! What a glorious few days we have had, and most are probably wondering when the next big surprise of when another big blast will come sneaking in, to bring out the coats and turn up the heat! Well, let me tell you a little secret on why I didn’t have a column in last Sunday. But, shooo, don’t tell anyone, ‘cause I don’t want anyone to feel sorry for me, just ‘cause I was suffering severe lupus pain and also, rheumatoid arthritis pains! Now, all of that pain sure brought on a bit of depression, as I am one of what all my teachers called me, a very active-hyper kid! So, when all of that occurs, it requires some bed rest, which allows for you to get those smiles stored up to share later, so no one will know that you have been suffering with such pain! But, the sun brought out the very best on last Sunday, with a crowd filling the sanctuary of the Sharon Baptist Church. They were there to hear pastor, Clint Dawkins’ wonderful message. Now, Sunday evening was different, with a group of musicians, who brought their musical instruments, songs, good music and comedy, bringing forth lots of laughter. So, come go with me, and let’s go down memory lane, as changing the mood a bit, I am going to share a poem, I wrote when my husband had a massive stroke, titled “Just For You,” “If We’ll Let God Hold Our Tomorrows.” By Correna F. Wilson – composed February 23, 1992 - I don’t know about today, tonight, or all of our tomorrows, but, I know God holds it all, whether sunshine, rain, or sorrows. He wants us to live each minute, hour by hour and day by day. To always let Him lead and guide us, controlling what we say. When we lean on God’s everlasting arms, burdens get lighter, and every mountain climbed makes the dawning of each new day brighter! Our dark clouds will change and now all will have a silver lining. And, if we don’t falter, we’ll live where the sun’s always shining! Remember, there’s a time to cry, a time to laugh, sow and to reap! Our God is there to love and protect when the storms of life are deep! He will be the light to our lighthouse at the lonely hour of midnight; He is the One who placed the rainbow in the sky, all to Noah’s delight! Without God, we are nothing, drifting in life like a ship without a sail. Can’t we see that living without His guidance and love, we’ll surely fail! He’s our Good Shepherd; He’s our Comforter; our Staff and Bread of life. He is the One who calms our stormy seas and eases pain of all our strife. If we’ll only trust Him, in good and bad, He’ll lead us beyond the blue sky, beyond the rainbows and mountain tops and even the birds that fly so high! Again, I say that I don’t know about all of mine or your tomorrows, but I know God holds me and you, in both times of joy and great sorrow!
