The Gift of Pain

     The Gift of Pain

Oh, pain, oh, pain.

Sent to me by God.

Oh, pain, oh, pain.

How long can I endure.

Though I feel, less alert,

I seem to be less afraid.

Oh, Lord, oh Lord,

In Your arms I'll be sure.

"For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee
of thy wounds, says the Lord."(Jeremiah 30:17) KJV

author's note: I was just in the hospital for almost three weeks
with pnemonia and some other health issues.  I am on the mend
and must tell you the day I went in my only prayer was:  "Lord,
hold me in your arms as I surrender all to you."
