In a Couple of Weeks [Choosing Joy by K. Albers]
In a couple weeks the colors will change.
We’ll be surrounded by more green than brown.
We’ll enjoy a stroll in the evening pink.
We’ll marvel at the bits of lavender and yellow that pop up from the ground.
In a couple of weeks our experience will change.
We’ll have spent more precious moments together.
We’ll have more joys and smiles to recall.
We’ll have more practice in how to pray through every trial.
In a couple of weeks our family will change.
We’ll have a fuller and busier house.
We’ll all have new roles to play.
We’ll understand even more the importance of cuddles.
In a couple of weeks our lives will change.
We’ll see spring bloom with color.
We’ll feel our family bloom with love.
We’ll praise God for the changes because they are for our good.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 (NIV)
