POETRY BY KATHY BOECHER©
You temper us along the way,
To make us perfect day by day.
At times it seems like waiting is the only thing to do.
We think our prayers aren’t answered, but that just isn’t true.
Our future you have crafted, we know your plans are great.
You pave the way to prosper us, you teach us how to wait.
Through waiting you grant patience to a heart that’s filled with pain.
You’ve conquered death. Eternal life is now our very gain.
Oh thank you, God for Jesus, on this day in every hour.
For taking on our hardships and turning them to power.
