Flowers and Thorns

Down the garden trail
where baby buds are born,
flowers bloom in colors fair
among the prickly thorns.

Life's thorns cross our path
causing pain and grief,
we pray God removes them
to give us some relief!

despite the sting they cause
we can overcome in victory
just like when Jesus died
and rose again at Calvary!

Thorns may bring torment
down life's garden trail,
but by God's sufficient grace
we always can prevail!

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.
