Thorns and Roses

A rose is beautiful as we know,
but by their side thorns will grow.
along with blessings God bestows
come many unexpected lows.

Obstacles we're bound to face
but we're sustained by God's grace...
be not shattered or dismayed
when life's thorns invade your days!

We'll encounter valleys dim
but in the dark keep trusting Him.
you'll not avoid adversity,
as Jesus walked, SO SHALL WE!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
