No Title

I never did give a title to this poem, but I wrote it as an introduction to a sermon on 6/27/2010.

Sometime when all life's lessons have been learned,
And suns and stars forevermore have set,
And things which our work judgments here have spurned,
The things o'er which we grieved with lashes wet

Will flash before us through our life's dark night,
As stars shine most in deepest tints of blue:
And we shall see how all God's plans were right,
And most that seemed reproof was love most true.

And if sometimes comingled with life's wine
We find the wormwood and rebel and shrink,
Be sure a wiser hand than yours or mine
Pours out this portion for our lips to drink.

And if some friend we love is lying low,
Where human kisses cannot reach his face,
O, do not blame the loving Father so,
But wear your sorrow with obedient grace,

And you shall shortly know that lengthened breath
Is not the sweetest gift God sends his friend
And that sometimes the sable pall of death
Conceals the fairest boon his love can spend,

If we could push ajar the gates of life,
And stand within, and all God's working see,
We would interpret all this doubt and strife,
And for such faint a mystery find a key.

By Pastor Dr. Ronnie Wolfe

Renting a car can bring more flexibility in pick-up and drop-off your rented car
from Tipoa Paphos Car Hire from Thessaloniki airport.
You must drive your Paphos Car Hire Airport hire car, booked via the hotel.
In 1908, the first day of pre-orders, the ship date for the
