Katie is one of my favorite students. She is curious and insightful. She writes for me from time to time and will be doing so all the time when we start our Reflections bible class in just a few weeks. Katie is also a great actress and vocalist. She makes going to school everyday fun for me!
The greatest joy there is
is the kind that’s mixed with sadness.
And the greatest peace there is
is oft devoid of gladness.
You see the greatest prayer i ever prayed
was in a time of weeping
And the greatest rest I’ll ever have
is where there is no sleeping.
It takes the blackest most
To reveal the stars in all their glory
and to appreciate their light.
It is a simple truth which can only be learned
in times of grief and tears
that it is then we see our blessings
and appreciate the passing years.
I pity the man who goes through life
never knowing pain.
Who coasts thru life with sunny skies
and never knows the rain.
As rain produces flowers
and often the rainbow
It is only in times of hardship
that our true colors show.
So when the storm clouds gather
and it seems to much to bear
I turn my eyes to glory
for even when the sparrow falls Jehovah sees and cares.
