The good times and bad…



I thank the good Lord

For the good times and the bad

Although it would be awfully nice

To never have to be sad

And yet it makes me appreciate

Much more of the good

By facing the days sorrows

Miracles can be found and understood

And when we see impossible happenings

Lighting up our darkest days

We begin to see possibilities

In everything we hope for and pray

The Lord can be gracious

When we believe he will answer our requests

It’s such a simple thing to do

And can leave us feeling so wonderfully blessed
