THE STONES

 

There are scenes in my mind I’ve asked God to erase...But He said that He wouldn’t and that I needed to face

The events of my past and gave me the reason. “For every time has a purpose and everything has a season...

The stones that you’re wanting to cast away,Will need to be gathered another day

And then you’ll look back and see, That each one carried a message from ME.

While one was sent to make you stronger, Another so that your patience was longer.

Another so that you’d learn when to pray, The other one that you’d know what to say,

Then another one came to bring you gain, Yet another soon after to cause you pain,

And one was sent to bring re-birth, To an otherwise dying sense of self worth,

And one to teach you to hold your tongue, (And I know that was your hardest one...!)

And another was sent to teach you to give So that through you, I might live.”

  1. I got goosebumps as soon as I started reading it! I believe you and your mother definitely have a gift. Thank you for sharing. Her poems helped me get through my surgery as a reminder to have peace and that God was right there with me. ~Fanchon
