When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

What I Know For Sure

Linking up with Mama Kats Writing prompts today.

What I Know For Sure
by Patricia A Pitterle

I know as sure as darkness falls, 
Each and every night,
With the coming of the dawn,
Will shine the morning light.

I know no matter how strong the winds
That blow upon my life,
The Lord with send the calm and peace
And guide me through the strife. 

I know that hurt will fade away,
And that true faith will start
To mend and teach to love again
A tender, broken heart.

But most of all I know that sin,
And sorrow and doubts and fears,
Can all be healed, washed clean again,
Through His gift of blood and tears.
