To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!

About Me

My photo
I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!

Just for A While

I know you are hurting – that you have bad days.
Your spirit is crying. It's hard to give praise.

Maybe something's gone wrong with your house of fine bricks –
Some pests, or a fire, or some vandals' bad tricks.

You forgot about a bill that now is past due.
You're overwhelmed with things – feel broken in two.

A friend has done wrong, or someone has died –
Maybe recent, or years – oh, the tears you have cried.

I truly do care, but there's One who cares more.
He gave His Son – and He can restore ...

All good things to us – one day it is true.
Like Job, we'll be blessed if we follow though.

Our sickness, our pain is just for a while.
The Great Physician can heal – change our tears to a smile.

Sorrow's for a season, then morning will come –
As we walk that last mile to our Heavenly home.

I couldn’t think of a title so I asked several friends. My favorite, the one I chose, was suggested by Joyce Brumbeloe (who also writes some good poems), taken from the next-to-last verse. I was thinking especially of 2 real good friends who've each had worse-than-usually bad times this year. I first sent it to them shortly after I finished it.
