It takes a wounded oyster to make a precious pearl.
You can cut a faded flower,
And the bush will bloom once more.
It takes a life that's suffered, to make a heart of gold.
That's how God makes special lambs that are part of his fold.

Wounds that hurt for healing is where God wants us to be.
It's the scars that come from battle,
That are proof for all to see,
That no matter your situation,
There is one who understands.
For Jesus bares a scar in each palm of his hands.

If your heart has been wounded from so much adversity,
And the scars are a reminder of how your life use to be,
Let Jesus loose the ties that bind you,
Only he can set you free.
For to him you are more precious,
Than all the pearls in the sea.

    This one touched me deeply, it is by far a poem of greatness of soul and compassion. Avis you are expressing both the greatness of your soul and it's unending compassion for you rloved one. May the good Lord bless you and send you an angel to minister to your needs. Love hugs, Vienna. It goes in my book of favs.

    The hard times make us stronger and we don't know what happens in the long run. Faith is one of the few things which can see us through it all.
