Bitter to Sweet

Me: After today, we are going to be with the chickens.

Prodigal: Yep, after all that work, I agree!

This is from A Treasury of Contentment by Ralph L. Woods

The joy of life is living it and doing things of worth,

In making bright and fruitful all the barren spots of earth.

In facing odds and mastering them and rising from defeat,

And making true what once was false, and what was bitter, sweet.

For only he knows perfectly joy whose little bit of soil

Is richer ground than what it was when he began to toil.

Psalm 63:1 Because your loving kindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. (NKJV)

Jennifer Van Allen
