Mercy Box

Life is wasted on so many small worries

Drink in all of the joy and sorrow

And find your way, His way

Close your eyes and dream

Picture where you want to be

Take His hand and trust His Word

Escape the pain and confusion, if only for a moment

Trust His enduring Love

Sadness can be so sweet-

If you smile at the Love thereafter

The emotions you feel, the tears you cry

Collected in the Mercy Box

Lessons learned-

In wisdom, in faith, in love

The wisdom gained

Is a real and precious gift

Only treasured by those God has chosen

To take it all in, to give it all back in love
