All in Good Time

sometimes we think things happen with no rhyme or reason
we can't rush the tide or change the season
we can't make someone feel love
it's best to trust our Father above

those times when we fret and worry
and go through life in such a hurry
we need a gentle reminder to slow down
God wants us to smile, not frown

when we're inclined to read between the lines
and ignore those Heaven sent signs
we make things harder than they have to be
God wants so much more for you and me

just know and believe
so many blessings for us to receive
all in good time
all in God's time

Romans 8:25
but if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
