Blessing in the Midst

oldhouseireland

It’s easy to be pleasant when life flows by like a song

But the man worthwhile is the one who can smile

When everything goes dead wrong.

For the test of the heart is trouble, and it always comes with years.

And the smile that is worth its salt

Is the smile that shines through the tears.

~Irish, Unknown Author

I was moved by this blessing/poem today, and it encouraged me to keep smiling, keep singing, keep hoping…through trouble, through pain, through hard times.  Because life is good, God is loving, and joy can be found, right now.  Blessings for a good weekend, Lisa

An Irish Prayer

May God give you…
For every storm, a rainbow,

rainbow
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,

And an answer for each prayer

Walk today knowing that God loves you so much.  Blessings, Lisa
