Be satisfied with what you have



Do not give in into sadness and desperation
For what you are going through today
God knows exactly with perfection
What being allowed to happen to your life
At this precise moment, God's purpose simply perfect.
He wants to show you things that only you can understand
By living what you are living, by being in the place
You are now. May God give you. . .. . .. . ...
For every storm, a rain bow;
A smile, for every tear;
A promise, for every care;
And a blessing in each trial;
A faithful friend to share;
For every sigh, a sweet song;
And an answer for each prayer. . .. . .. . .
