Action: Sharing a poem for inspiration and strength

Submitted by:  Randy and Wren Deavers (and their two children) 

"Being a father of a special needs child, I can think of no better words to share at this time than a poem given to me when Landon was born (January 26, 2006)….it remains on our fridge to this day and it has given both Wren and I strength, especially when Landon was in NICU when we received his diagnosis.

“God hath not promised
 skies always blue,
Flower strewn pathways
 all our lives through;
God hath not promised
sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow,
peace without pain.

But God hath promised
strength for the day,
rest for the labor,
light for the way,
grace for the trials,
help from above,
unfailing sympathy,
undying love.”      Anne Johnson Flint"
