I will be glad

Joy and Sorrow


I will be still, my bruised heart faintly murmured,
As o'er me rolled a crushing load of woe;
The cry, the call, e'en the low moan was stifled;
I pressed my lips; I barred the tear drop's flow.
I will be still, although I cannot see it,
The love that bares a soul and fans pain's fire;
That takes away the last sweet drop of solace,
Breaks the lone harp string, hides Thy precious lyre.
But YHWH is love, so I will bide me, bide me--
We'll doubt not, Soul, we will be very still;
We'll wait till after while, when He shall lift us
Yes, after while, when it shall be His will.
And I did listen to my heart's brave promise;
And I did quiver, struggling to be still;
And I did lift my tearless eyes to Heaven,
Repeating ever, "Yea, Yeshua, have Thy will."
But soon my heart upspake from 'neath our burden,
Reproved my tight-drawn lips,
my visage sad:"We can do more than this, O Soul," it whispered.
"We can be more than still, we can be glad!"
And now my heart and I are sweetly singing--
Singing without the sound of tuneful strings;
Drinking abundant waters in the desert,
Crushed, and yet soaring as on eagle's wings.--
S. P. W.

I was wondering the same thing. I know you do not know me but I really enjoy reading your blog. But I am now hoping you are ok.

That is a beautiful poem. Not sure who the author is. I would guess from the "tearless eyes" that it is just a poem in general that expresses hardship and remember that God is in control. Be still and know that I am God. I pray you are well and nothing is wrong.

Beautiful! And what a cutie you have!

I hope you don't mind my answering the MEP question here. I didn't find an email link. Yes, I look over the lesson plans the day before and whip out the worksheets to teach. The lesson plans are full of ideas and the answer key is within the lesson plans also. I hope this helps. There is a helpful mep homeschoolers yahoo group also. It was so good to hear from you! Happy Resurrection Day!

Nice ail painting.

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
