Blessings

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
~Romans 8:28~

I know, as my life grows older,
And mine eyes have clearer sight,
That under each rank wrong somewhere
There lies the root of Right;

That each sorrow has its purpose,
By the sorrowing oft unguessed;
But as sure as the sun brings morning,
Whatever is, is best.

I know that each sinful action,
As sure as the night brings shade,
Is somewhere, sometime punished,
Tho' the hour be long delayed.
I know that the soul is aided
Sometimes by the heart's unrest,
And to grow means often to suffer --
But whatever is, is best.

I know there are no errors,
In the great Eternal plan,

And all things work together
For the final good of man.

And I know when my soul speeds onward,
In its grand Eternal quest,
I shall say as I look back earthward,
Whatever is, is best.
~Ella Wheeler Wilson~
