What a shock! I've not seen Aunt Shirley for several years but she is always in my thoughts and prayers. I've never really called her "Aunt", except to other people, because she is 8 months younger than I. I'd like to share a poem which was a part of my mother's passing in 1957 which I've always cherished.
Love,
Sondra

What God Has Promised

God has not promised
Skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways
All our lives thro’;
God has not promised
Sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow,
Peace without pain.
God has not promised
We shall not know
Toil and temptation,
Trouble and woe;
He has not told us
We shall not bear
Many a burden,
Many a care.
But God has promised
Strength for the day,
Rest for the laborer,
Light for the way,
Grace for the trials,
Help from above,
Unfailing sympathy,
Undying love.
Annie Johnson Flint
1866-1932
