His Son Was Nailed

“How can you smile”, he asked of me,
“When life is so full of misery?
Just what is behind this mystery,
That puts a smile on your face where a frown should be?”

No misery that visits me today Can break the promise that God has made If in his glory, I bask each day No misfortune can take my smile away
“And what makes you think these stories are true? What has God ever done for me or you? Our stomachs are still empty when the day is through The pleasures we’ve known are short and few.”
Because this I know and I know it well It’s in the stories that the gospels tell God ensured that evil will always fail When upon the cross his son was nailed

    And with each rainbow we're reminded. The promise of his love that binded. Forgiveness, faith and hope eternal. That his deciples scibed into the journal. Wonderful poem Joe. The ending is such a beginning.

    i'm not gonna say that. i got good days an bad days. and days i need to ask God to make better. and He does but it's me who needs testing. and i agree everyday. but it's when He shows up that i feel The greatest.
