A poem I felt the Lord gave me many years ago. – Nels Church
Ah, oh yes my son, I see the road you see –
It’s a road of laughter and excitement filled
with joys unending and pleasures evermore.
It’s a road of happiness and mysteries –
oh yes, I see the road you see.
I see the road you see,
but let me share a glimpse of the road I see before you.
Oh yes, the sun and flowers are still there
and yes the laughter and excitement have not gone away.
But the road is really not so straight and narrow
and the pathway not near so smooth.
No my son, it has many curves that only I can see around
and many valleys to broad to walk around.
It’s a road so rough it’s often filled with tears and sorrows.
It’s a road that speaks of heartaches and fears of tomorrow.
I see the road you do not yet see, the road with sun and flowers, fears and sorrows.
I see the road you do not yet see – and yet the victory is ours.
