Thought for the Week

God has not promised skies always blue,
flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God has not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God has promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labour, light for the way,
Grace for trials, help from above,
Unfailing sympathy, undying love.
(Annie Johnson Flint)
